Actually, I lived here for about 3 years...
Location: 30 miles from Atlanta.
It is a typical southern style town with old homes and court square.
I lived right on Historic street of this town. Right across of the street there is a Painted Lady Victorian House. During the Civil War Confederate soldiers stayed there.
There are lots of huge houses with big white columns.
Newnan is a center of planned growth and activity for the west central Georgia region. The city has five historic districts listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
The land that is now Coweta County. Newnan, the county seat, was first settled in 1828. Newnan is named for North Carolina Native, General Daniel Newnan, who was a soldier and later became Georgia Secretary of State and a United States Congressman. Once Newnan was established as a town, lawyers, doctors, and merchants began conducting business in the new town. The city was laid out in a grid pattern with a nine block central business district, the center of which was the courthouse. The streets were named for such famous Americans as Jackson, Jefferson, Washington and Madison.
