Presidents of the Haralson County Historical Society
Mrs. Mary K. Knight -- Founding President
Mrs. Knight served as our founding president during the years 1973-1977. During her administration, the Historic Courthouse in Buchanan was placed on the National Register of Historic Places and we began the decades-long process of preserving and restoring this building. Read a recent statement from her here.
Mrs. Leona Lasseter -- Second President
The late Mrs. Lasseter was our president during the years 1977-1983. Our History Book was formally edited 1978, during her term of office. We regret she is not with us to enjoy use of the wonderful Historic Courthouse she and our other early leaders set out to try saving.
Mrs. Daisy Sargent -- Third President
Mrs. Sargent served as our president for two years during the 1980s, also working equally long as vice-president. During her service, we finally (1984) published the first printing of our History Book.
