Alpharetta is a city in Fulton County, Georgia, United States. As of the 2006 census, the city had a total population of 57,000 .

Selected for its location next to a spring, it began as a campground, and was originally known as New Prospect Camp Ground until late 1858. Officially chartered on December 11 of that year, Alpharetta ( Greek for "first town") became the county seat of Milton County until the end of 1931, when Milton was merged with Fulton County to avoid bankruptcy during the Great Depression.

Georgia 400 (U.S. 19) is the freeway connecting suburban Alpharetta with Atlanta to the south. It parallels surface highway S.R. 9, which was originally multiplexed with U.S. 19 and was the only paved road through town prior to the county merger. The town also had no railroad, a rarity for the area. Despite its poor start then, and being one of the furthest-out large suburbs in metro Atlanta, it is now home to numerous mid-rise buildings of 10 or more floors each, which are home to many high-tech companies including UPS Supply Chain Solutions, Lucent, Nortel, IBM, Sun Microsystems, AT&T, Siemens, Verizon, Alltel, E*Trade, and ChoicePoint.

 

Alpharetta is governed by a city council comprised of six members and a mayor. The mayor and council members serve staggered four-year terms.

Mayors:

Arthur Letchas 2001 - Present

Chuck Martin 1995 - 2002

Jimmy Phillips 1979 - 1994
