The City of Senoia in Coweta County Georgia has a dirty little secret! The town is home to hoards of ZOMBIES!
“The Walking Dead” season premiere on October 14, 2012 at 9:00 on AMC will commence the third season of this popular sci-fi drama.
And while much of the filming has already been shot in rural Coweta County and at the Raleigh studios south of town, Season Three will feature the City of Senoia in a more up close and personal way.
As the fictional town of “Woodbury,” (not to be confused with the real city of Woodbury GA) the entire town has been turned into a movie set. Prop signage, unmown grass, and a backdrop “City Hall” all contribute to the transformation.
Back in the 1980s, Senoia was nearly a dead town. The once thriving rural community was on the verge of having its historic downtown area fade into obscurity.
Due to a number of factors, the town began coming back in the late 1990’s. But nothing has brought more prosperity to the village as the Walking Dead.
Aficionados of the program flock to the town to see where it all “happens” Senoia is now a tourist destination.
Senoia now boasts upscale restaurants, boutique shopping, and even a nightclub. The once deserted streets are now abuzz with activity!
The town has always welcomed visitors with true Southern Hospitality.
But if you come to Senoia, please beware of Zombies!
They could be anywhere!
