Introduction to Hapeville, Georgia

Hapeville, Georgia, in Fulton county, is 6 miles S of Atlanta, Georgia. The city is part of the Atlanta metropolitan statistical area (MSA).

Hapeville History

Creek Nation Indians, who were among the original inhabitants of this region, ceded a large tract of land to the whites in 1821. Initially, the area consisted primarily of individual farm settlements of the Cash, Mangum, Thrailkill, Sims, and Hape families. In 1853, this land became part of Fulton County and on September 16, 1891, the village of Hapeville was chartered by Hapeville's first Mayor, Dr. Samuel Hape. In 1929, the City of Atlanta purchased land which was owned by Asa G. Candler, Jr., and established a municipal airport, which was known as the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. This airport soon became the world's busiest airport. The Ford Assembly Plant was established in Hapeville in 1947, and the Airport Hilton opened in 1960. Both events played major roles in the economic growth of the community.
