New Site is located in the north central part of Tallapoosa County. The community of New Site was established in 1849 when families wanted to locate to a more quiet area from the hustle and bustle of a gold mining town located just north of our existing town. Families loaded their wagons and traveled, looking for a “new site” to call home. When they arrived at the quite, wooded and peaceful area, the name of New Site stuck and our community’s name remains the same to this day.
Our community was incorporated in 1965 so our residents could establish a public water system. With the help of many dedicated citizens our first mayor and council members were elected in August 1965.
Today we continue the tradition of being a close community and value our small town values. The Town of New Site operates under the leadership of a Mayor and five Council Members (elected at-large). The Town of New Site has an active Town Hall with a Community Room.
