In 1826, northern settlers arrived in what is now Villa Rica and soon discovered gold. Later, with the arrival of a railroad, residents moved Villa Rica to its current location so that the rails would pass right through the center of town. The city then grew even more.

Today, Villa Rica is still growing, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in 2000 proclaiming it one of the trendiest places to live in metro Atlanta.
