Say hello to our good friend, the city of Newnan. You may want to pull up a chair, because this county seat has a lot to talk about. Like the fact that the town was able to save its arse, er, architecture, during the Civil War due to its status as a hospital city. That’s right, the people of Newnan quite literally put the “hospital” in hospitality for both the Union and the Confederate troops, which allowed its residents to heal the ailing while also preserving their homes. And now you, dear reader, have the opportunity to explore not just one but six historic districts on the National Register of Historic Places.
And you were wondering why the town’s tagline is “The City of Homes”?
