Originally founded as Jug Tavern as a traveler’s outpost, the city of Winder, Georgia, was incorporated in 1893. The presence of the Georgia, Carolina and North Railroad passenger train allowed the community to grow quickly. The community’s quick growth caused confusion as the city was located in three different counties until lines were changed 75 years later.
In more recent times, the community has won numerous awards. It has been named one of the safest cities in Georgia, and it has been recognized for the quality of its water. Most residents are very proud of the sustainable way of life that is achieved in the city. Elements of this green movement have been easily incorporated into many homes in Winder including ZIP system framing, AdvanTech floor sheathing, low emissivity insulated glass windows and Energy Star appliances.
Winder is centrally located between Athens, Georgia, and Atlanta making it easy to enjoy everything both cities have to offer. Yet, this community of about 14,000 residents enjoys a quieter way of life. The retailers at "The Gateway" at University Parkway and other retailers around the city ensures that residents have everything they need without having to travel far.
Students receive a quality education from the schools in the Barrow County School District including at Winder-Barrow High School. Notable alumni from this school include National Football League player Rico Mack along with baseball players Travis Demeritte and Max Pentecost.
