Nicknamed the “City of Dreams,” Carrollton is a thriving community of about 26,000 people west of the state of Georgia. The seat of Carroll County is situated some 40 miles west of Atlanta and southwest of Marietta. The city, which is classified part of the Atlanta metropolitan area, has a historical reputation of being a major commercial hub for several counties across both Georgia and Alabama.
The origin of Carrollton is traced to the decision by the justices of the Carroll Inferior Court in 1829 to move the seat of Carroll County, which was chartered three years earlier, to the present location of the city. The town was incorporated in December 1829. Originally, the plan was to name the town “Troupville” in honor of George Troup. But the former governor was not a popular choice with the-then state government, so Carrollton was chosen for Charles Carrollton, the last-living signatory to the Declaration of Independence.
As of 2015, the population of the city was estimated at 26,203, representing an increase of more than 30 percent from the level in the 2000 census.
