Relocating to Alpharetta GA?
Welcome to Historic Alpharetta Georgia:
In 1857 sections of Cobb, Cherokee and Gwinnett counties were merged to create Milton County. The crossroad town of New Prospect was chosen as county seat because of its central location. The city of Alpharetta Georgia was founded on December 11, 1857, the town was chartered and became the county seat of Milton County. The town name "Alpharetta" comes from the Greek "alpha" meaning first and "retta" meaning town. In 1932, Campbell and Milton County merged with Fulton on January 1, 1932. At this time Roswell was ceded from Cobb County.
It is conveniently located in North Fulton County, just 18 miles north of the City of Atlanta, and straddles the Chattahoochee River with a lovely rolling terrain, with lush trees. It is well know for the quality of life it offers. There are great schools, recreation parks, fine neighborhoods, and libraries.
Today, Alpharetta is best known locally in the Atlanta metro area as the "New Buckhead!" This is because of the fine neighborhoods, country feel, fine dining, entertainment, the Northpoint Mall, and because so many of the new businesses in the Atlanta area call Alpharetta home!
All in all, it is a great place to live! Why not come home to Alpharetta Georgia?
