Serving as Georgia's Capital from 1804 to 1868, Milledgeville is often considered the only surviving example of a complete Federalist Period city. Named after Georgia's Governor John Milledge (1802-1806), the city was laid out with broad streets that followed four points of a compass. Including plenty of green space, large public squares were incorporated in the city’s plan. Providing a central location in the heart of Georgia and a steady water supply, the city's success is most noticeable in its architecture and institutions of higher learning.
