MEET THE FULTON COUNTY
In 1853 our story began by creating our County from the west of DeKalb County. To honor a surveyor for the Western and Atlantic Railroad our ancestors named our County after him. After the American Civil War, when Atlanta began to grow and expand rapidly in both business and population our whole county grew also. Step by step we slowly worked towards becoming the best at the industry, business and railroad shipping. While the Great Depression was taking the best out of America, Fulton County expanded and annexed Milton County and Campbell County. At that moment we took shape you recognize today. Today, in the north of Georgia, we count over one million people inhabiting the territory. It is divided into seven districts, and each has a commissioner. We are proud of our county seat Atlanta as it became a home to many headquarters of companies like The Coca-Cola company, Porsche Cars Nort America, some banks and so on. As the ninth largest metropolitan area in the entire U.S. Atlanta is slowly winning the hearts of million of tourists and new residents. But it wouldn’t be what it is without all the other cities surrounding her. From Alpharetta, housing The Alpharetta Family Skate Park to Sandy Springs’s River Summer Splash, they all make the Fulton County lively and interesting to young people as well as to the older population. Each city has something to offer. County consists out of Alpharetta, Alpharetta, Atlanta, Chattahoochee Hills, College Park, East Point, Fairburn, Hapeville, Johns Creek, Milton, Mountain Park, Palmetto, Roswell, Sandy Springs, South Fulton and Union City.
Atlanta is extraordinary but so are all the other cities; you just need to take a little bit more time to get to know them. College Park, for example, has many recreation centers; Fairburn is a home to Georgia Renaissance Festival and Rosewell has Mandy landmarks to visit like halls and museums. All these cities are a reason why Atlanta and the County, in general, has such a success in tourism and achieving high life quality. The infrastructure is well maintained so traveling to Atlanta is quite easy, and you can have many stops on the way to the „Alpha City“. We hope that all of this convinced you that the Fulton County is much more that Atlanta alone. It is a beautiful territory with many human interest things to see and do . Our goal is to attract you, no matter are you a resident or a visitor, to go out there and explore what our County has to offer. We truly believe and hope that you will listen to our advice and be, as many before you were, pleasantly surprised.
