Newnan is a small city located approximately 30 miles southwest of Atlanta. It's one of the fastest growing cities in Georgia, with an estimated population of 34,000. Established in 1828, Newnan served as a hospital city for Confederate troops during the Civil War. As a result of this, it was largely untouched by the war, and thus retains much of its' antebellum architecture. Newnan's small-town atmosphere, historic charm and vibrant downtown appeals to residents and visitors alike. The town has been used as the setting for several television series, such as "Drop Dead Diva," and movies such as "Fried Green Tomatoes." It's also somewhat of a shopping hub of the Atlanta region, with hundreds of stores located on the historic court square and downtown area. Newnan is home to one of the few Georgia museums that focuses mainly on African American history. The Coweta County African American Heritage Museum and Research Center, also called Caswell House, is located on Farmer St. on an old, unmarked, slave cemetery. The museum houses hundreds of genealogical records and also the Coweta Census Indexes from 1870 to 1920. Newnan is also known for the historic trial of John Wallace in 1948. Wallace was the first white man in the south to be condemned to death by the testimony of African Americans. These events were portrayed in the novel and movie, "Murder in Coweta County."
