Nestled among the lush wooded foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains sits Gainesville, Georgia. This family-oriented community is one of North Georgia's most prominent and economically-sound cities and the recipient of the City of Excellence award from the Georgia Municipal Association.
Being home to Lake Lanier, one of America's most popular inland water destinations, Gainesville offers an abundance of recreational activities, from boating and jet-skiing to swimming and fishing. The lake's 690 miles of shoreline attracts thousands of visitors to the sparkling waters each and every summer, but with the mild year-round climate in this part of the country, the lake offers those who live here a full year's worth of fun and excitement.
Downtown is home to several of Gainesville's best shopping, dining and entertainment options. Locally-owned specialty stores offer up one-of-a-kind shopping experiences while many of the restaurants in the downtown area fill their menus with regional delicacies showcasing locally-grown fruits and vegetables. For cultural enthusiasts, Gainesville enjoys an active arts scene that offers exceptional opportunities for taking in a live performance, a symphony concert or a visual arts display.
Gainesville, Georgia was originally called "Mule Camp Springs," and it was one of the state's primary regional trade and transportation centers in the early 1800s. It was officially chartered as Gainesville on November 30, 1821 and quickly grew in size and population after the 1828 gold rush in nearby Lumpkin County. A fast-spreading fire nearly destroyed the city in 1851, but within 20 years, Gainesville would be well on its way to being one of the most progressive cities in the state. After World War II, Gainesville became the country's leading provider of poultry, earning it the nickname, "The Poultry Capital of the World." Thanks in part to its scenic location near the Blue Ridge Mountains, it is sometimes referred to by another nickname that's equally appropriate – "The Queen City of the Mountain."
Gainesville enjoys a solid economy with a good balance between locally-owned businesses and larger corporations. With its brick sidewalks and archetypal southern architecture, the city offers the epitome of southern atmosphere and a real estate industry that continues to grow with new construction on-going.
