The town of Fort Valley is located in Peach County, Georgia just 90 miles south of Atlanta. The city was chartered in 1856, but the origin of the town's name is unclear. One story claims that it was named "Fox Valley" by its founder’s hand writing, James Everett, was misread by post office officials in Washington, D.C., as "Fort Valley." Fort Valley became the center of Georgia’s peach industry. By 1921, one third of the peaches shipped from Georgia were from Fort Valley. Today, more than half of Georgia’s peaches come from Peach County.
