c05 KEG ON ROOF ALERTED 'YANKEE' DANGER By HAMPTON DUNN APALACHICOLA --In the 1830s, this picturesque community at the mouth of the Apalachicola River was a swinging place. It had be come a top cotton producing and cotton shipping center in the South. At the outbreak of the Civil War, "Apalach" became the second largest cotton shipping port on the Gulf of Mexico. The original name of the town was "Cottontown", later it was called West Point when in corporated in 1827, and finally it adopted its present nam e in 1831 when a post office was established. A distinguished Postmaster was Dr. John Gorrie, famed inventor of the ice making machine. It was a boom town because of prosperity, complete with saloons and gambling halls. Real estate came high: Between 1834 and 1836 business lots sold for as much as $3,000. During this period many fine mansions were built, and a number of them still grace the city today. One of these is the "Orman House," built by Thomas Orman in 1836. It is on 5th Street and is a two story frame dwelling on an elevation overlooking the scenic river. It has slave quarters in the rear. There's a bit of Civil War lore revolving around the Orman House. It is reported that the lady of the house, Mrs. Sarah Orman, was a fiery secessionist and sh e placed a keg on the roof of the house as a signal to warn Confederate soldiers returning on furlough that Federal troops were in the city. Descendants of the Orman family still occupy the home.
