Living in Coweta County Dictionary definitions of “living” refer to “having life” and use words such as thriving, vigorous and strong. There are references to “burning or glowing” like a coal in a campfire at Chattahoochee Bend State Park and to “flowing freely” as the waters of the Chattahoochee. Wherever you are in Coweta County, there is good living — good neighbors, good food, parks, businesses, schools, churches. Coweta’s natural beauty is abundant. In many areas of the county, there are long stretches of road with evergreens and deciduous trees masking deep forests. Coweta’s towns boast pleasant parks for picnicking, walking or just relaxing and contemplating. Cultural resources cover a wide range of interests. Art is found at the Francoise Gilot Gallery at the Centre for Performing and Visual Arts, as well as in many restaurants and businesses. Museums in Newnan, Senoia and Moreland offer unique experiences, and antique shops and thrift stores hold treasures waiting to be discovered. There also are sports events and recreation facilities. Great schools and libraries are here, and Coweta increasingly offers opportunities for residents to pursue higher education. It is the people of Coweta County who make this a unique place. Visit with Cathe Nixon at the Centre, spend a Sunday morning hearing Sarah Felix preach or stop by the old courthouse to get a brochure and a friendly greeting from Mark Puckett. You’ll gain some insights into what makes Coweta a fine place to live. There are new, exciting things happening in our county. The German-style apprenticeship program is being watched not only in Georgia, but all over the United States. Our medical facilities are drawing people seeking healing — and some of the most skilled healers anywhere. Even in Coweta’s history, there is the promise of tomorrow. Cowetans today can trace the steps of William Yates Atkinson and Ellis Gibbs Arnall, who represented their home county well serving as governor of Georgia. Perhaps someday, an issue of Coweta Living will point out spots that seem ordinary today where a young person is growing up to fill that same role. Until then, enjoy living in Coweta County — and this latest edition of Coweta Living. — W. Winston Skinner, Editor
