Newnan, in Coweta County, is roughly 40 miles southwest of Atlanta. It has a total area of 18.6 square miles, and as of the 2010 census, 33,000 residents. Considered a fast growing town, Newnan has had a 103.4% population increase since 2000. It was established in 1828 and was largely untouched by the Civil War due to its status as a hospital city for both Union and Confederate troops, hence the name “City of Homes”. As a result, Newnan still features much antebellum architecture and is considered one of the best places to live South of Atlanta.
