Downtown Alpharetta Historic District

The center of Alpharetta is known for its historic buildings, many of which date from the earliest days of the chartered city in the 1850s. Others date to the first decade of the twentieth century, with a second building burst taking place in the 1900s and 1910s. Together they make for a blend of southern-style clapboard homes, complete with sheltered wrap-around verandas and simpler brick-built structures. Among them is the Dodd Hotel from 1870, which continued as a boarding house for teachers and similar professionals right up until 1940.
