Situated along the Chattahoochee River at the far western edge of the Georgia state line between Atlanta and Montgomery, West Point exhibits distinct chapters in the transportation industry. Founded along the river to enable transportation of textile products, the town became a key railroad location during the American Civil War, and currently enjoy the prosperity of being home to one of America's largest automotive plants.
