History of Alpharetta, GA
From the North Georgia mountain tops to the Chattahoochee River alongside a Cherokee Indian trail, a small village known as New Prospect Camp Ground was created. This village, comprised of tents, a log school, and arbor became a buying and selling post where Indians and white settlers traded their goods. The nearby countryside offered superb farming land, particularly for cotton. On December 11, 1858, the town had been chartered and became the county seat of Milton County. The town had been re-named Alpharetta from the Greek terms "alpha" meaning first and "retta" which means town. In 1932, Milton County was combined into Fulton County.
Alpharetta and Milton County can easily track their historical past to the time of the resettlement of the Cherokee Indian Nation within the 1830’s. First, drawn by the promise of free Indian lands, a few relatively itinerant setters moved into the region. These very first pioneers had been quickly followed by permanent farmers and retailers who had been the privileged winners of the land lotteries of the early 1830’s.
The very first permanent landmark in the region was the New Prospect Campground, sometimes called the "Methodist Camp Ground". This campground was situated alongside a natural spring just north of the current "downtown" area of Alpharetta. A "Camp Meeting" in that period was the social and cultural highlight of the season for the families residing on remote farms with very few travel options.
