The Newnan Division is located in the county seat of Coweta County. The 2002 census reports that 457,866 residents now call the area home.
Newnan is located off of I-85, approximately 35 miles southwest of Atlanta. This area is rapidly becoming a suburb of Atlanta, because of the growth of areas like Peachtree City, which is located just north of Newnan. Peachtree City is a planned community of four villages, that include shopping areas, recreational facilities, and schools. Peachtree City's growth has been stimulated by its convenient location close to south Atlanta industries and Hartsfield International Airport.
Southwest of Newnan is West Point Lake, a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers lake. West Point Lake sits on the Georgia/Alabama border. The lake extends 35 miles along the Chattahoochee River and has a shoreline of more than 500 miles, http://westpt.sam.usace.army.mil. Not far from West Point Lake is LaGrange, Georgia, which is known for its technology industry. LaGrange is home to such industries as Duracell, Georgia Pacific, the Caterpillar Corporation and a WalMart regional distribution center.
