Peachtree City is the largest city in Fayette County which is in the southern portion of metro Atlanta. The city has been the filming location for several episodes of The Walking Dead, as well as scenes from the film Joyful Noise. The city has been named to multiple “Best Places to Live” lists as well.
It was chartered in 1959 after a group of real estate developers acquired over 12,000 acres in Fayette County to build a planned community in the 1950s. The city was developed in villages, with the current villages being Aberdeen, Braelinn, Glenloch, Kedron and Wilksmoor.
This area was first settled by Woodland Era Indians about 12,000 years ago. Back in 1775 William McIntosh, Jr was born. He was the son of a Scotsman and Creek Indian woman. He believed that the Indians and white settlers could live and settle their differences in a peaceful way. So in 1821 he relinquished Creek land to the Federal Government. Part of this land became Fayette County. In honor of Chief McIntosh, there are several tows and roads originally given a Scottish name. They also named McIntosh High School after him to honor him.
