The company was chartered December 31, 1881, consolidating the Georgia Western Railroad and the Georgia Pacific Railroad Company of Alabama. Elyton and Aberdeen Company was incorporated in Alabama and Mississippi in 1870 for the purpose of connecting Elyton, Alabama, and Aberdeen, Mississippi, by railroad. The charter was unused until the Richmond Terminal Company acquired control of it in 1881; consolidated in 1881-82 with the Columbus, Fayette and Decatur Railroad Company and the Georgia Pacific Railroad Company of Alabama to form the Georgia Pacific Railway Company.

Georgia Pacific Railway Company began construction in 1881. Regular service to Atlanta began May 15, 1882, and the road to Birmingham was completed in November 1883

The company was the predecessor of the Southern Railway.

Joseph Bryan, a Virginian, was part of the group that was particularly notable in founding, building, and promoting the development of Birmingham, Alabama.
