Alpharetta is located in the state of Georgia and a city in Fulton County and is a suburb of the northern part of Atalanta. The Cherokee inhabited that state, and the rest of the southern states were then forcibly relocated to the Indian Territory, which is not present-day Oklahoma under the Indian Removal Act. It was later on then settled by the pioneers and the farmers on the land that was vacated by the Cherokee people. The first permanent landmark that was established in the site was the New Prospect CampGround or the Methodist CampGround, wherein it is situated in the present-day Alpharetta. It also then serves as the trading post of the area wherein the exchange of goods among the settlers took place. The name of the city was a variation of a fictional character about an Indian girl that is named Alfrareta in the 19th-century song “The Blue Juniata.”
