City’s History Book Now Available

Published

on

From a farming settlement to a technology mecca, Peachtree Corners has a rich history.

Centuries ago, Native Americans roamed the land bordered by the Chattahoochee River, later strong and resilient families settled in the area and farmed the fertile land.

The history of its storied past has been captured in the community’s first history book. The book titled Peachtree Corners, the History of an Innovative and Remarkable City 1777-2020, is filled with stories of long ago. Numerous historical photographs add to the story of the community’s rich past. The 230-page coffee table-style book is now on sale in the city’s online store.

Well-known author Carole Townsend tells the story of the early days when the Creek Indians claimed the land as their own, then takes the reader on a journey of the early settlers through the eyes of long-time residents who recall farm life. That life was often hinged on a good crop year which determined if the farmer’s children would have new shoes for the coming school year.

The city’s history ends with its modern-day transformation that began in the 1970s when Georgia Tech engineer and developer Paul Duke began purchasing land for Technology Park and the surrounding community.

“This book thoughtfully recounts the past and present of our community through personal narratives of the people who lived here and knew it best,” said Mayor Mike Mason. “It’s their memories and photographs that we set out to capture and preserve.”

The book is available for purchase on the city’s online store. Autographed copies available while supplies last.
