A walk through the newly beautified downtown Fayetteville will have you thinking of times when towns were centered around a main street where everyone met to shop, eat and socialize. That's because Fayetteville is a certified Georgia Main Street City. This is an award given out every year to towns in Georgia that follow the National Main Street Approach to Downtown Revitalization™, a program that works to reclaim America's downtowns and main streets

Fayetteville Statistics

Fayetteville is named after a French nobleman, the Marquis de Lafayette, who assisted General George Washington during the Revolutionary War. Fayetteville is the county seat of Fayette County. In the 2000 census, Fayetteville's population was just under 14,000. Fayetteville covers 9.9 square miles. The median house value is $140,500. Fayetteville is about 30 minutes away from downtown Atlanta, giving residents a small-town feel with the convenience of a nearby metropolis. Atlanta is only 20 miles north of Fayetteville, so residents have access to all the business and cultural events Atlanta has to offer.

Fayetteville has seven schools. Fayetteville's public schools are part of the Fayette County School System. According to their mission statement, the Fayette County School System is committed to effective instruction, high expectations and continued improvement. If you have school-aged children who will be joining this district one you move, it's a good idea to contact the district office for more information.

For those interested in cultural adventures, the Villages Amphitheater is located downtown. Fayetteville has a new business district, thanks to the downtown revitalization project, and a new law enforcement complex and courthouse. The New Neighbor League is always on hand to show newcomers what living in Fayetteville is all about.
