Alpharetta Snapshot

The city’s name is a variation of a fictional Indian girl by the name of Alfarata in a 19th century song entitled The Blue Juniata.

Alpharetta’s pioneering cotton farmers wouldn’t believe how high the cotton’s gotten these days. The fields they plowed in the 1800s are sprouting multimillion-dollar estates as Alpharetta moves farther into the upper echelon of metro Atlanta’s housing market

The opening of Ga. 400 in the mid-1990s was a boom for Fulton’s northernmost municipality. The historic town’s popularity soared as more newcomers poured into this area of rolling hills and woodlands.

There’s something about winding along the two-lane roads, seeing the grazing horses and noticing a few deer that makes heading home to Alpharetta a true delight.
