Founded as a railroad terminus in  1870 by 16 families, East Point is the eastern point of the Atlanta and West Point Railroad and today boasts a population of 38,000+ residents. Stations along the route were located in Fairburn, Palmetto, Powells, Newnan, Grantville, Hogansville, Lagrange LongCane, and West Point GA.  Today it is comprised of Colonial Hills, Conley Hills, Semmes Park, Jefferson Park, River Park, Eagan Park, Meadow Lark Estates, Golden Acres, Savannah Walk, Heritage Park, Frog Hollow, & The Villages of East Point.

East Point is located just south of former Fort McPherson of which 330 acres is now Tyler Perry Studios.  Many young and older professionals alike live, work and play in East Point.   Easy access to Marta and other amenities make this a popular destination in which to live.   It is home to Dick Lane Velodrome  which is bordered by the neighborhoods of Semmes Park to the north and Conley Hills to the south and which is the only velodrome in the world with green space inside the track.  With College Park and Hapeville to the South and Southeast, together they comprise the Tri-Cities area of the SW corridor within Atlanta; located just inside the perimeter (ITP if you haven’t heard that yet, you will).  Based on the housing stock, population density, and the proximity of amenities of the area the feeling of the area is dense suburban.
