About Atlanta

The city of Atlanta has a deep and colorful history. The area that the city was originally built on in the 1830s was essentially carved out of a dense forest, and the surrounding areas were cleared as the population expanded. Atlanta's existence was spawned by the need for a rail line that serviced the South, and within a few years, four rail lines connecting the city to many corners of the abbreviated nation were in place.

Atlanta grew in size and importance during the Civil War, where it quickly became a cornerstone for the operations and training of Confederate troops. After the dust of combat settled, the city built its first university. By the year 1890, Atlanta had a population that exceeded 65,000.

Atlanta's downtown district began to form in the final decade of the 19th century when two tall buildings were erected and filled with clients. By the time the first decade of the 20th century was over, the city had nearly doubled in size from its 1890 census total.

Major American industries planted their roots and grew their reputations in the Atlanta area during the beginning of the 20th century. The city began to attract resident for many reasons, including the availability of jobs, the farming-friendly climate and the general buzz that was created by a city expanding so quickly. Many of the residents that came to Atlanta between 1900 and 1950 planted their own roots and raised families.

The population of the city in 1950 was over 331,000, meaning that Atlanta had become one of the nation's largest metropolises. Its size and geographic location allowed it to play a large role in the Civil Rights Movement, which garnered massive support from the growing and blossoming African-American community in Atlanta. In the 60+ years since, Atlanta has matured into one of the cultural and culinary hubs of the nation. It is visited by tens of thousands of tourists every year and boasts several popular attractions, including four major professional sports teams.

The climate in Atlanta is warm and humid, making the air thick and heavy. Those that call Atlanta home believe the summer conditions are a small price to pay for living in the midst of a lush natural area that is mostly devoid of the pollution and smog that many large cites on the West Coast experience. In short, Atlanta is an excellent place to spend a vacation.
