Welcome to Milton

Semi-rural city offering a bucolic equestrian lifestyle

Milton is an exclusive semi-rural city in the northernmost part of Fulton County. Although it was incorporated in 2006, this city’s roots stretch much further back. Milton developed as an equestrian community with local farms staging mom-and-pop horse shows in the 19th century. Modern-day Milton has many horse boarding stables and horseback riding trails while venues such as Wills Park host scores of horse competitions and championship rodeos. Milton is one of Georgia’s most affluent cities, offering an idyllic country lifestyle without sacrificing restaurants and other amenities. 

Milton’s real estate mix includes suburban developments of spacious single-family homes and grand acreage estates with equestrian facilities.
