Before Alpharetta became a city in 1858, it was known as the town of Milton. It served as the county seat of Milton County until that county merged with Fulton County in 1932, in order to stave off bankruptcy during the Great Depression.

About Our Deals
Apartment Finder utilizes the industry's largest and most complete database of real-time rents and availabilities to help you find an amazing deal on your next rental.
Apartment communities change their rental rates all the time – sometimes multiple times a day. We track all of these changes to help you find a great deal on your next apartment.
We call a unit "Best Value" if it is in a high-quality building (three star or above) that has units that are priced significantly less than similar apartments in the same area.
Apartment communities regularly advertise deals for new residents. Maybe it's a free TV or discounted rent. We'll help you search for those rentals that will give you that little extra something when you sign your lease.
Note: Based on community-supplied data and independent market research. Subject to change without notice.
