College Park sits partly in Fulton County and partly in Clayton County in the northern part of Georgia. The city is home to the Georgia International Convention Center and the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is located partly within its boundaries and these two properties make College Park one of the region's most visited areas.
The city of College Park was established in 1890 and incorporated in 1891 under the name Manchester. It was renamed six years later to College Park due in part to the fact that the city was home to both Cox College and the Georgia Military Academy, which is now called the Woodward Academy. True to its college roots, the city's east and west avenues are named after prestigious Ivy League colleges while the north and south avenues are named after some of the city's most inspiring and important residents.
College Park is home to The College Park Woman's Club, one of the oldest of its kind in the United States, and the College Park Municipal Golf Course. The city is also home to several corporate headquarters, including those for ExpressJet Airlines, Atlantic Southeast Airlines and the fast-food restaurant, Chick-fil-A. It also has the fourth-largest urban historic district with no fewer than 867 locations and structures listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
College Park enjoys the enviable position of offering newcomers all of the benefits of small town living without compromising the amenities of a much larger metropolitan. One of the fastest-growing economic centers in the country, College Park offers residents a stronger than average economy, easy transportation access to nearby Atlanta and an endless array of entertainment and recreation options. One visit is all it takes to see why Atlanta Magazine named College Park one of the "Best Places to Call Home."
