We have put some excerpts from a couple of their pages, but please, go visit their site at www.eastpoinths.org.
East Point,was established due to an 1847 Act incorporating the Atlanta and LaGrange RR (now Atlanta & West Point RR). It stated that its eastern most terminus should be at a convenient point along the Macon and Western RR (now Central of Georgia RR) between “the City of Griffin and the Town of Atlanta”. This exact location is marked by a bronze disk set in a concrete post. This point of reference was used, as part of East Point’s charter in 1887, to establish the limits of the town, all beginning from this point. East Point is sometimes candidly referred to as “The Point”.
East Point boasts what many cities long for… location, location, location. Located next to the busiest airport in the world, Atlanta Hartfield-Jackson International Airport, just nine miles from downtown Atlanta, situated between four major interstates: I-75, I-85, I-20 & I-285 and boasting its own MARTA train stop, East Point’s location is hard to rival! In addition, East Point is located in the sought after ITP area (Inside The Perimeter) with abundant quality, affordable housing stock. These are just few more reasons we consider East Point a hidden jewel in Metro Atlanta!
