Newnan “City of Homes” is one of the many suburbs just outside of Atlanta, Georgia. Newnan’s residents number around 37,000 giving the area a very suburban atmosphere. The city of homes earned its name in the late 19th century when industries in the area made Newnan one of the wealthiest cities in the country. With all of this wealth, residents built beautiful new antebellum homes in the late 1800s, and this small town became known as “The City of Homes”. While not many antebellum homes are being built, new custom homes are being constructed in Newnan today! Home builders in Newnan get the benefit of living in a charming small town, shopping in the historic downtown district, and having a commute of only 40 minutes to Atlanta.
