History Museum


The Alpharetta & Old Milton County History Museum is comprised of a permanent collection of artifacts and interpretative displays which guides the viewer through a chronological timeline of Alpharetta’s past. The City’s history is deeply connected with the neighboring cities in North Fulton, therefore the museum reaches beyond the current boundaries of Alpharetta.

From 1858 to 1932, Alpharetta was the county seat of Milton County, which encompassed the present-day cities of Johns Creek, Milton, Mountain Park, portions of Roswell, and northern Sandy Springs. This connection is reflected in the collection and variety of displays found throughout the museum.

The Alpharetta & Old Milton County Historical Society is our partner and support for the museum.

Alpharetta’s Stories (Click Here) - A unique feature of the museum is Alpharetta Stories Project where you can hear the firsthand interviews and memories of long-standing Alpharetta citizens. For easy listening, each interview timeline is tagged by subjects. You may listen at the museum kiosk or from home at https://vimeopro.com/mjmpro/alpha-stories.
