Welcome to Henry County, comfortably south of Atlanta. Only a short 30 minute drive down I-75 from Atlanta, this fast growing county is a great place to live, work, play, and raise a family. Henry County is the fastest growing county in Georgia and the 6th fastest in the nation. There is a unique mixture of southern hospitality along with all the activities of a dynamic city.
Henry County, Georgia was created by the State Legislature in 1821. Like much of the area, the land was acquired from the Creek Indian Nation. Originally, the county covered most of what is metro Atlanta. Over the years, it has been divided and seven counties can trace their roots to Henry. The Battle of Atlanta- a key to Sherman's March to the Sea in 1964- included Henry County, as Union troops continued their destructive path from Lovejoy to McDonough. Nash Farms is a county maintained park recognizing the county's historical significance in the war.
For the next 100 years, Henry County remained a rural farm community. But in 1969, interstate 75 opened, providing a short commute to the big city of Atlanta. Coupled with the abundance of rail lines, Henry County also became an important county for industry. Today, Ford Parts, Nestle' USA, Whirlpool, and BellSouth Services all have major distribution centers here. With these and other industries located in the county, the population is growing rapidly. In the last ten year period the population of Henry County has more than doubled and is expected to continue increasing.
Shopping enthusiasts flock to Tanger Outlet, in Locust Grove, from all over the Southeast. The shopping mecca boasts over 70 stores, and the best cookies south of Atlanta. Henry County is host to two NASCAR races each year, packing in 140,000 racing fans. LPGA fans can play the course of their favorite golfers at Eagles Landing. There is a growing arts community, excellent medical facilities, and many churches of every denomination. Housing choices are abundant- converted lofts in Hampton, country clubs in Stockbridge and Locust Grove, and wide open spaces in Ola. There is truly something for everyone.
