About

The first issue of the Harris County Enterprise began publication on May 17, 1860 in Hamilton, Georgia. James H. Moore served as the newspaper’s editor for its short lifespan. The Enterprise was able to continue publication during the Civil War, but due to difficulty acquiring paper at that time, the newspaper was published at a reduced size. Under Moorefield’s ownership, the Enterprise came out every Thursday at a subscription cost of two dollars a year. In the early 1860s, Moorefield sold the paper to L. W. Williams who took the subscription list and title with him to West Point, Georgia. Murphy and Thomas revived the Enterprise in Harris County on March 4, 1864.
