At one time, Coweta County Georgia was the fastest growing county in the entire United States. But the nearly uncontrolled explosive development threatened the rural character of the former bedroom community, now a suburb of Atlanta.
When the earth movers ceased their incessant drone in late 2006, the days of the great land grab ended. And acreage as a commodity was no longer traded.
So at least for now, I can drive a few short miles and be a totally different world, devoid of sprawl and in essentially the same state as it was fifty years ago.
Anthropological history, at least for now, is taking a much needed breather I Coweta County.
And I for one am glad! (I took these photos today!}
