Carroll County is at the western end of metro Atlanta- a farming community with Old South charm that is growing into one of the most attractive, progressive counties in the region. As the south in general grows, with its wonderful climate, lower cost of living, and abundance of charm, the distance between cities shrinks. With its convenient location on I-20, Carroll has the unique position of being within commuting distance of both Atlanta and Birmingham, Alabama.
Like most of the region, the area was originally home to the Creek Indians. The county was organized in 1826 from lands acquired by a treaty with the Cherokee and Creek Indian Nations. The Creeks felt betrayed by the signing of the treaty and murdered Chief William McIntosh, the signatory of the Indian Springs Treaty. The county was named for Charles Carroll, the last living signer of the Declaration of Independence. Originally, settlers were drawn here by the rich soil offering good farming and also the prospect of gold (Villa Rica translates to city of gold in Spanish). Today, abundant opportunities for business and families attract people to settle here. Southwire, Goldkist, Printpack, and many other industries have provided their products and services, as well as employment, throughout the region.
The University of West Georgia provides undergraduate and graduate degrees and 116 programs of study. The school, centrally located in Carrollton, has a student population of 9000. The Tanner Medical Center in Carrollton is the primary regional healthcare center for west-central Georgia, with a 50 year history of excellence in the region. There are an abundance of housing options, from subdivisions and golf course communities, to renovated farmhouses, and historic downtown districts. The county seat of Carrollton is the largest market in the county and also offers townhouses and renovated lofts, along with the afore mentioned choices. Vast tracts of land and rolling pastures are still affordable in the south of the county. With this great location, along with a low cost of living, and ample room for development, Carroll has it all.
