Sandy Springs is a city in northern Fulton County, Georgia and an inner ring suburb of Atlanta. The city’s population was 108,080 at the 2020 census, making it Georgia’s seventh-largest city. It is the site of several corporate headquarters, including UPS, Newell Brands, Inspire Brands, Focus Brands, Cox Enterprises, and Mercedes-Benz USA’s corporate offices.
Human settlement in the area can be traced back to approximately 400 CE, when Native Americans forged three trails to better access the area’s freshwater springs. In the 16th century, the Creek Muskogee tribe settled the area, where they remained until the early 1800s, when they were forced out of the area due to the discovery of gold.
