Hogansville is a city located in Troup County. With a population of 2,774 in 2000, the city sits within a total area of 6.7 square miles. Its unique beginning was a result of William Hogan's braveness to rise from the pre-civil war plantation. Two important routes are crossing Hogansville, the east-west road to Augusta known as Highway 100 and the North-South Railroad middling West Point and Atlanta.
By Hogan's granted right-of-way, he gave 150 in addition to the crossroad stipulating that a depot be built on the place. In his genius, he did foresight in his grant, a creation of a town before its incorporation in 1870. Historically significant it is, the depot was carefully restored and rebuilt.
Right after settling the area, Hogan built his little home near the mill on South 29. He started to built his brick colonial house. Though it was burned in 1899, it was rebuilt in 1991.
Hogansville is a mill town mostly on its existence. To host resident workers, a mill village was constructed just adjacent to the mill surrounded by the streets of Dickinson, Green, Johnson and Askew.
Hogansville hosts yearly events such as Christmas parades, Trunk-or-Treat, Van Byars Antique Auction and most popular, The Hummingbird festival. The Christmas parade is small town at its best with Santa Claus and 12 well decorated floats in which both are home-made and professional. Trunk-or-Treat is Hogansville's idea of how to celebrate Halloween. Van Byars Antique Auction is the city's tradition every third Sunday for the entire year. Hummingbird Festival is being celebrated every third week in October since 1998. It is a festivity to showcase the cities brilliant gift in arts-and-crafts which in an opportunity to its visitors and residents see how great local artisans can be combined with traditional fun.
This event is highlighting the historic Hogansville's downtown which was incorporated as a town in 1871 and established during the early years of 19th century. This sought after festival for tourists and alike was established by Jackie Byars of van Byars and Glenda Gordon of the Grand Hotel, underwritten by a local property owner and developer John hardy Jones. Along with the dedication and hard work of supporters as well as local helpers, Hummingbird festival was successfully made to reality. In the beginning, only 24 vendors were grown but increased to approximately 200 last 2007. The number of visitors has increased beyond what was expected, from 1,000 to more than 13,000 goers in 2006.
