Alpharetta Real Estate & Homes in Georgia

Located in fast-growing North Fulton County, Alpharetta began as a tiny village named New Prospect Camp Ground. This village consisted of tents and a log school and functioned as a trading outpost. The surrounding land provided productive farmland, especially for cotton. On December 11, 1857, the town was chartered and became the county seat of Milton County. The town was renamed Alpharetta from the Greek words "alpha" meaning first and "retta" meaning town. In 1932, Milton County was merged into Fulton County.

Today, the city is a modern, growing community of almost 66,000 residents and a center for employment. Alpharetta is also the home of several high-tech companies, including Hewlett-Packard, UPS Supply Chain Solutions, Lucent, Nortel, IBM, E-Trade, General Electric, and Radiant Systems. Students living in Alpharetta are served by the schools of Fulton County, and for those who are ready to move on to a more collegiate environment, area universities and colleges include Strayer University, and Georgia State University, to name a few.
