Newnan was established as county seat of Coweta County in 1828 and was named for North Carolinian General Daniel Newnan. It quickly became a prosperous magnet for lawyers, doctors, other professionals, and merchants. Much of Newnan's prosperity was due to its thriving cotton industry, which relied on slavery. Newnan was largely untouched by the Civil War due to its status as a hospital city (for Confederate troops) and as a result still features much antebellum architecture. Celebrated architect Kennon Perry designed many of the town's 20th century homes. During the Atlanta Campaign, Confederate cavalry defeated Union forces at the nearby Battle of Brown's Mill.
A good place to grow your family, your business, your life. Newnan has been named the City of Homes with its historic roots and vibrant downtown. It’s also been named Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation. Newnan is an attractive community for families of all ages – the area features safe and friendly neighborhoods, tree-lined streets, a diverse economy, and high quality schools. Newnan is located in the center of Coweta County. Coweta County is one of Georgia’s largest counties and each of the seven incorporated cities has something unique to offer. Film and television production crews have set up shop for years, boosting the local economy with big-screen movies like “Fried Green Tomatoes,” “Sweet Home Alabama” and “Zombieland,” as well as TV hits like “The Walking Dead.”
