Long Description:
HISTORY: The City of Dallas, Georgia was founded on May 14, 1852 as the county seat of Paulding County, on property sold to the State of Georgia by Garrett Spinks. The city was chartered by the Georgia General Assembly in February, 1854. The city was named for George Mifflin Dallas, Vice-President of the United States under President James Knox Polk. Prior to its founding, Dallas was a crossroads of Cherokee Indian paths, and the abundance of natural springs brought settlers into the area. In May, 1864, Dallas was the site of intensive fighting during the Atlanta Campaign of the American Civil War. The Confederate forces held firm at Dallas, New Hope Church and Pickett's Mill, forcing the Union Army east towards Kennesaw.

TODAY: Dallas has a population of about 5300 people. It operates under a mayor and council form of government with a city manager. The charter provides for a mayor and six council members. The Mayor and City Council meet the first Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Dallas City Council Chambers, 129 East Memorial Drive.
