There is extraordinary discourse about the beginning of the City’s name. One story has the name originating from the 1885 request for the U.S. Postal Service to set up a mail station in what was then known as Roswell Junction. The U.S. Postal Service was worried that the proposed name of Roswell Junction was excessively near the close by City of Roswell. The Postal Service at that point arbitrarily chosen the name “Chamblee” from the rundown of applicants for the new mail station name. The Chamblee chose was an African-American railroad laborer.
