Description
Valdosta's history is linked with transportation growth and a strategic location in the path of early westward expansion. Originally called Troupville, the settlement was designated a county seat in 1837. When it became evident that Troupville would not be on a proposed 1860 railroad route from Savannah to Mobile, Ala., the townsite was moved to take advantage of the potential prosperity. Troupville citizens renamed the town Valdosta for the governor's home Val de Aosta, or “Vale of Beauty.”
The city has six historic districts featuring Victorian-era commercial and residential buildings.
