The community of Sharpsburg was originally founded in 1825, but was not incorporated until December 13, 1871. The original city limits were circular with a quarter mile radius extending from the former depot of the Savannah, Griffin, and North Alabama Railroad which is now the Central of Georgia Railroad. This depot no longer stands, as it gradually deteriorated following the demise of the railroad’s passenger service. Sharpsburg was named for a Judge Elias Sharp who owned one of the first homes in Sharpsburg and helped incorporate the community.
