Sandy Springs has always been a community in transition. Bounded to the north by the Chattahoochee River, the area was contested by both the Cherokee Nation and the Creek Confederacy, who used the river as a territorial marker. To the south, the urban center of Atlanta has blessed and, at times, cursed her rural neighbor with close proximity. Today Sandy Springs is still in transition. From a rural village to one of Georgia's newest cities, the history of Sandy Springs is a story of change.
