JEFFERSON HIGH SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPHICAL ARCHIVES

In April, Governor Ernest Vandiver and State Highway Board member Willis N. Harden lent their support to what was to be known as “the lower route” for Interstate Highway 85. This location would bring the highway directly through Jackson County at Braselton, between Jefferson and Pendergrass and near Commerce. Its extension to the South Carolina line would bring it near Lavonia and Royston. Support of these two state leaders was looked upon as apparent approval for the lower route location.
