Overview

Sandy Springs has always been a community in transition. Bounded to the north by the Chattahoochee River, the area was contested by both the Cherokee Nation and the Creek Confederacy, who used the river as a territorial marker. To the south, the urban center of Atlanta has blessed and, at times, cursed her rural neighbor with close proximity. Today Sandy Springs is still in transition. From a rural village to one of Georgia's newest cities, the history of Sandy Springs is a story of change.

The Images of America series celebrates the history of neighborhoods, towns, and cities across the country. Using archival photographs, each title presents the distinctive stories from the past that shape the character of the community today. Arcadia is proud to play a part in the preservation of local heritage, making history available to all.
