The history of Alpharetta can be traced back to the 19th century when the town was just a trading post. In the 1830s, settlers began to arrive in the area in search of fertile farmland on which to work and raise a family. The town has seen its fair share of war and conflict, most notably in 1863, when it was subject to a smallpox epidemic. However, through all of this, it’s emerged as a prosperous and bustling town, attracting business travellers with its generous selection of corporate housing.
Today, Alpharetta is Georgia’s 12th most densely populated city and boasts some of the best schools in the United States.
