Alpharetta

Known far and wide as the Technology City of the South due to the large number of tech-focused companies that call Alpharetta home.

Welcome to Alpharetta

The history of Alpharetta dates back to the 1830s. From its humble beginnings as a trading post, the community found prosperity, and the City of Alpharetta was established on December 11, 1858; later becoming the seat of government for Milton County.
 
Alpharetta is now Georgia’s 12th most populous city, boasts some of the best schools in the United States, and is known far and wide as the Technology City of the South due to the large number of tech-focused companies that call Alpharetta home. Today, with all the trappings and success of a metropolitan city, Alpharetta remains known for its sense of community; an ideal environment for raising families, making friends, and enjoying a quality of life that is second to none.
 
Years ago, Alpharetta laid the foundational groundwork to be a business and tech success story. They created a fiber optic infrastructure supported by high-end mixed-use developments, and a revitalized downtown making a perfect plan come together. Alpharetta is the New Urbanism and the single best case for moving OTP.
