Sesquicentennial 1848 - 1998

Thomas Hough founded Augusta in 1848, naming
it after his favorite cousin, Miss Augusta Cald,
of Virginia. For generations it was known as
Chickasaw Crossing. The first settlers came in
1820. It was incorporated in 1861. During the
Civil War Augusta was almost entirely destroyed
by Federal troops. It was a major White River
steamboat port. Its one mile railroad (1887-1958),
once the shortest in the world, connected Augusta
to the main line.
