second Milton County Courthouse

Old Milton Courthouse  -  1858

The second Milton County Courthouse was built circa 1877. After the county became a part of Fulton County in 1932 the courthouse fell into disrepair. It was razed in 1955 to make way for the Alpharetta Municipal Building which housed city hall.

Webb Building

The Webb Building was constructed in 1907 at the northwest corner of South Main Street and Milton Avenue. Retail shops filled the first floor while the top floor was used as a hotel razed circa 1970; the site is now occupied by the downtown city pocket park.

Alpharetta School

Opening in January 1922, Milton School housed grades one through eleven. In the fall of 1956, grades one through seven were moved to the new Alpharetta Elementary School on Mayfield Road.

Colonel J. P. Brooke Home

Colonel J. P. Brooke purchased property on Academy Street in the 1880s and soon built this imposing home for his family. Colonel Brooke was an attorney and Superior Court Judge for the Blue Ridge District.

Manning Store Howell Manning (hands in pocket) owned this store on North Main Street. Postman Dodge Teasley leans on the post. George Upshaw is sitting on the porch floor to Mr. Teasley's left.
The Adventist

The Adventist was located at the southeast corner of Church and Canton Streets. After the school closed, the building was used as a residence for forty years. The structure was razed circa 1965.
