Just a few miles west of downtown Atlanta, Douglasville is a welcoming city with a friendly, small-town atmosphere and entertainment that emulates big-town fun. While the city continues to grow, Douglasville uniquely preserves its signature hometown feel

Located at a natural rise in the topography, Douglasville was originally known as Skint Chestnut, a name derived from a large tree stripped of its bark and used by Native Americans and traders as a trail marker. Downtown Douglasville is a nationally designated Main Street city and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Historic Douglasville has a unique blend of small-town ambiance and impressive entertainment that is great fun!  Downtown Douglasville

Douglasville’s downtown area is central to art galleries, markets, historic landmarks, shops, restaurants, and entertainment. Douglasville Commercial Historic District has been on the National Register since July, 1989. Most of the buildings in the district are original and exhibit various styles of architecture including Victorian, Queen Anne, Craftsman, Colonial Revival, Romanesque, Italianate, Beaux Arts Classicism and Tudor Revival.   When you delve into the history of the downtown area and the backgrounds regarding a large majority of the men who were featured so prominently in its development it cannot be denied that Douglasville was a “New South” town following Henry Grady’s call for the development of industrial capitalism to replace the plantation system. The city provides information for a walking tour of the downtown area here.
