Traces of Native American occupation and the prior communities of Aberdeen and Clover remain within Peachtree City. The State of Georgia has officially recognized two specific historic locations and regulates all the abandoned and active cemeteries. Three abandoned cemeteries are now owned by the Fayette County Historical Society and other local historic sites have been noted by the Society for their significance. Peachtree City will respectfully preserve and maintain all City-owned abandoned cemeteries and other identified historic sites as undeveloped greenbelt areas.
