Custom Home Builders in Rockdale County, Georgia

Build Your Custom Home in Conyers, GA

Rockdale County is a suburb of metro Atlanta, only 24 miles east of Atlanta. The county is the second smallest in the state, but is big in appeal to families. Recreational facilities include the Conyers International Horse Park, the equestrian site of the 1996 Olympic Games, fishing reservoirs, and a host of soccer, baseball, and football fields. The Johnson Park Recreation Center offers after school care and day camps in the summer.

Like much of metro Atlanta, the Creek and Cherokee Indians had a significant impact on the area. The principal dividing line between the two nations was the road that was used as the primary route of Scottish and Irish settlers. By the early 1800s a settlement was established around Costley's Mill on Big Haynes Creek. Several mills were built, a cotton gin, and a school. Smyrna Presbyterian Church, founded in 1827, has the oldest campground in the nation, still in existence today.

The railroad played a major role in the development of the county, when a train station was established in the 1840s. Soon, the population had reached over 400, and the county seat was named Conyers in deference to Dr. W.D. Conyers. He was instrumental in getting the railroad in the county. Many of the mills were destroyed in Sherman's March to the Sea, but the rail line and established routes enabled the county to rebound quickly. Within 10 years the town of Conyers grew to 1,800 residents, 40 stores, 12 saloons and five brothels. One of the most famous residents of the county, Sally Fanny Gleaton, was a leader in the battle for women's suffrage following Reconstruction. The county was officially created in 1870 and named after Rockdale Baptist Church, which in turn, was named for the rock strata that exists underneath a large portion of the region. It is perhaps best on display at Panola Mountain State Park.

The county has been at the forefront in education reform, building new schools in the 1960s and establishing a higher pay rate for teachers than neighboring counties. A ratio of 17 students per teacher is much less than most metro counties. This progressive trend continues today in many areas of community development. Conyers has recently embarked on a plan to revitalize its historic town center, known as Olde Town, with an impressive botanical garden and streetscapes. Several of the homes and businesses here are recorded in the National Register of Historic Places. The Mall at StoneCrest anchors several other shopping centers for the region. Though the housing is primarily urban, there are still many wide open parcels of land to build on. The cost of living is 11% below the national average and with an average of 217 sunny days per year this county is an excellent choice for your family.
