Tuesday, September 9, 6:00 p.m.

Thomas B. Moss was a remarkable educator and surveyor in Oglethorpe County throughout the second half of the 19th century. Educated at the University of Georgia, he returned home to teach at the renowned Meson Academy in Lexington. He taught or was headmaster for 41 consecutive years. Later in life he became a surveyor and drew dozens of plats for land transactions. His grand achievement was the production of a very accurate, detailed map of Oglethorpe County that was published in 1894. Presenter Tom Gresham is co-founder and president of an Athens-based archaeological consulting firm and president of the Oglethorpe County Historical Society. In Multipurpose Room A.
