Over the past two-and-a-half centuries, Clayton County has transformed from a rural, farming community into a highly-populated suburb of Atlanta. Arcadia Publishing and Historical Jonesboro/Clayton County, Inc., are working together to capture the changes in a new book showcasing the county's visual history, from past to present.
