A City of Historic Architecture and Southern Charm

Newnan is the perfect setting for Blalock Lakes, because the city also embodies the relaxed pace and traditions of the past. Known as the “City of Homes,” Newnan was incorporated in 1828 and boasts 800 sites on the National Register of Historic Places. These antebellum structures survived because Newnan served as a hospital city during the Civil War. Today, the popular downtown area is filled with quaint shops and gourmet restaurants. The charming streets and buildings provide a perfect backdrop for hometown events, like the Fourth of July Parade, Taste of Newnan food festival, and Powers Crossroads Country Fair and Arts Festival.
