Norcross, Georgia was created from four communities, Pinckneyville, Flint Hill, Beaver Ruin, and Mechanicsville. Norcross owes its development primarily to the railroad expansion after the civil war and to J.J. Thrasher. The railroad followed a much older traveler's route. The ridge constitutes a section of the eastern continental divide. It was a transportation route first for the native americans, and then a stage coach line, and finally the Richmond-Danville Railroad. Thrasher bought the acreage surrounding the proposed first stop north of Atlanta and named it after his friend, Jonathan Norcross.
The town became a kind of early resort town. Atlantans took the train north to escape the heat and dust of the city in the summer. Even now, Norcross does not consider itself a suburb. The city website refers to the community as a "charming alternative to suburbia". The historic downtown area is carefully maintained, but the community also advertises its commitment to new urbanism and diversity.
Norcross recently won the Atlanta Regional Commission's (ARC) Green Communities Silver award. The city supports a concert series during the summer, a farmer's market that runs from June to October, and a reputedly haunted theater. Norcross even has it's own team of ghost-hunters, Norcross Paranormal.
