City of West Point, GA
West Point, Georgia, established on the banks of the Chattahoochee River in 1832, was historically the headquarters and guiding hand of the area’s dominant textile industry, which was established just after the Civil War. Over the last several years, that industry moved abroad.
Today, West Point is home to Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia site – Kia’s first U.S. plant. Several Kia suppliers have located in two business parks: one in Troup County and one in Harris County – and both within the City of West Point. Part of West Point’s attractiveness is its access to Interstate 85, which provides an easy drive to Atlanta and the Atlanta airport to the north and Montgomery, AL to the south.
West Point is served by both Troup and Harris county schools, each regarded as top-quality, and by highly rated Springwood School in nearby Lanett.
For leisure pursuits, there’s historic Fort Tyler, New Horizon Theatre, Hawkes Library, the restored West Point Depot and Museum, West Point River Park, and, just to the north, West Point Lake. Of course, the Chattahoochee River runs right through the middle of town, giving kayakers and canoeists another view of the city.
