Happy Birthday Peachtree City!

By Nancy Price, Executive Director Peachtree City CVB

In the 1950’s, a group of real estate developers amassed over 12,000 acres in Fayette County to build a planned community. Peachtree City was chartered March 9, 1959. The city was planned to be developed into villages, each with its own shopping areas, elementary schools, recreational parks, facilities and more. Peachtree City's current villages are Aberdeen, Braelinn, Glenloch, Kedron, and Wilksmoor.

On Monday, March 9, Peachtree City turns 56 years old! Plan a visit to our town and see what we’ve done in 56 years! Take advantage of over 24 square miles of resort-style living and 90 miles of multi-use recreational and golf cart paths. Peachtree City's green lifestyle offers a unique setting for outdoor recreation, leisure activities, and much more.

Peachtree City is one of the best known and most successful planned cities in the nation.
