History:

Manchester, established in 1890 and incorporated in 1895, became known as the city of College Park in 1896. The city has 853 properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of the Interior. The city's name came from being the home of Cox College (where the city hall and other buildings now stand) and Georgia Military Academy (now the Woodward Academy). The east-west avenues in College Park are named for Ivy League colleges, and the north-south streets are named for influential College Park residents.

The College Park Woman's Club, one of the oldest in Georgia, is located in Camellia Hall on Main Street.
