West Point Location
Founded in 1832, the idyllic town of West Point is home to 3,500 residents along a scenic stretch of the Chattahoochee River on the I-85 corridor, just an hour’s drive from the capital cities of Atlanta, Ga., and Montgomery, Ala., and four hours from the Gulf Coast beach and Georgia mountains. Part of the Greater Valley Area, West Point straddles Troup and Harris Counties in Georgia and sits just minutes from the Alabama cities of LaFayette, Lanett and Valley across the border. In fact, Point’s traditional students live in apartments just across the state line in Valley.
Formerly a commercial hub for textile production, today’s West Point has a thriving economy as home to Kia Motors’ first U.S. automotive plant, which opened in 2010 and is expected to bring upwards of 20,000 jobs to the region by this year. West Point has a walkable, historic downtown with an eclectic assortment of shops — from antiques and unique home furnishings to quaint apparel and accessories boutiques — and eateries including Asian, Southern and pub-style cuisine.
