Hall County, Georgia is a part of the extensive metropolitan Atlanta area. But the green-space, fresh air and many parks make this county seem worlds away from the city. Though Lake Lanier touches parts of five counties, it is used interchangeably with Hall and Forsyth Counties, which accounts for 90% of the shoreline. This huge 38,000 acre reservoir was created by the completion of the Buford Dam in 1956. Originally created to provide hydroelectricity and flood control for Atlanta it has also become the primary water source for Atlanta. For residents and visitors to Hall County, it means a recreational feast- with sailing, boating, huge fish, skiing, and camping. The shoreline is also home to many houses- simple to mansions.
Like so much of North Georgia, the area was originally home to the Cherokee Indians and the area south of the lake served as a safe travel path between the Cherokee and Creek Indians. In 1818, the county was formally established and named for Lyman Hall, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence and an eventual governor of Georgia. Poultry and sawmills became major sources of industry in the mid 1800's in Hall County and remain so today. Perhaps because of this, the county was not devastated as much of the metro Atlanta was in the War Between the States.
