Acquire A House in Atlanta, GA
Do you love being in the city? Does it energize you, cause you to be creative, when you’re surrounded by people, noise, and action? Or do you enjoy being in the thick of things but enjoy being in the thick of things but enjoy escaping to your quiet and happy place? Atlanta may be jaw-dropping in size but actually has both the energy and the peacefulness.
Atlanta is one of the South’s Phoenixes, rebuilding out of the ashes as it was destroyed, pillaged, and burned by Sherman’s men on their march to the sea. Atlanta thrives today because it was unbeatable. However, Atlanta is rich in history, dating back to 1837 when the Western and Atlantic railroad ended. No one really knew what to call it so it went through various names, such as Canebreak or Canebrake, Marthasville, Terminus, Deanville, and Thrasherville. In the end, the name Atlanta was chosen, the female form of Atlantic (the second name of the railroad), and, some say the middle name of the then governor's daughter was Atlanta. Martin Luther King, Jr., leader of the controversial Civil Rights Movement, was born and raised in Atlanta. You can learn more about King or the Civil Rights Movement by visiting Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historical Park.

One of the country’s biggest and busiest airports can be found in Atlanta, the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airports, and was once upon a time, a race track. It was in 1925 that things got started to turn it into an airport, and it went through several names, too. By 1957, it was discovered that the airport was super busy, with an estimated 2 million people passing through. According to Patch.com, about 75 million people passed through. With Covid, the numbers dropped as countries closed their borders. Now, with borders opening, there will be a lot of people passing through the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
