Incorporated as Springville in 1838 in the lands of two Cherokee Indian leaders.  Gold had been discovered in Georgia ten years earlier, and the first area settlers came to find that gold. The name Springville was changed to Powder Springs in 1859 because of the seven springs in the city limits. The water in these springs contains some 26 minerals that turn the surrounding sand black like gunpowder.  Civil War history includes a skirmish at Lattermore's Mills on June 20, 1864, that was a part of the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain and General Sherman’s Atlanta Campaign.
