History of Fayetteville, GA

Named for a French aristocrat, Marquis De Lafayette, who helped George Washington during the Revolutionary War, Fayetteville became an official place in 1823. It has been the county seat of Fayette County ever since. In 1831, a fire burned multiple buildings in town, but by 1849, the city had rebuilt itself and had a courthouse, jail, multiple churches, two schools, a print shop, a Masonic Lodge, and multiple stores and mechanic shops. Unfortunately, just like most of the rest of Metro Atlanta, the Civil War devastated much of the Fayetteville. Union soldiers looted homes and businesses, vandalized property, and took over the courthouse. It wasn’t until nearly two decades later, in 1888, that the city began to see growth again. It became incorporated that year and the railroad began coming through. Sadly, more bad luck hit when a tornado swept through in 1892, killing three and destroying a great deal of the town’s property. Again, the city rebuilt, and most of the buildings in town today still stand from that reconstruction period during the 1890s and early 1900s.
