Atlanta is located in Cass County in East Texas, an agricultural
area that focuses on livestock and timber. Cass County was named
for Lewis Cass, a Michigan senator who was in favor of Texas
annexation. However, during the Civil War, Cass fell out of favor
with the locals because he was against Texas secession. In 1872,
Atlanta became an official town, and settlers named their new
settlement after their hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. In 1954, Texas
acquired 1,475 acres of land that would become the Atlanta State
Park. Football is also a very popular part of life here, second
only to hunting and fishing. The plentiful woods and beautiful
lakes in the area draw many visitors and retirees.
