BUFORD
Georgia, U.S.A.
LEATHER TOWN
Welcome to Buford, Georgia.
The Town of Buford is situated just 35 miles northeast of Atlanta and close to renowned recreation areas like Lake Lanier. Home to around 11,000 people, the city is a bustling spot featuring urban entertainment, sports and plenty of outdoor fun. Buford was originally a leather industry hub where the Bona Allen Company housed its burgeoning business. In the first half of the 20th century, the company was one of the largest employers in the area, and today the Bona Allen Mansion still stands as a historic monument open to tours. Much of the historic town is still left today with old pompous mansions, some of which are open for visits and others restored for new owners. The downtown area features a plethora of shopping options with local boutiques, antique dealers, art galleries and memorable restaurants. Modern additions include the Mall of Georgia on Buford Drive, where shoppers can revel in more than 225 stores as well as an amphitheater and a movie theater. Green space is not lacking either, as the famous Lake Sidney Lanier graces Buford with its expansive shores. The lake is a reservoir created by the U.S Corps of Army Engineers, and is today an immensely popular recreation spot for millions of visitors. The area features hundreds of campsites and tourists can rent boats, hunt, swim, hike and fish the options are nearly endless. The city is big on sports as well, and Buford brags several junior league champion teams. The Buford High School girls' basketball team is in fact one of the best in the entire nation, attracting recruiting coaches from prominent institutions like the University of Tennessee. For art, check out the many galleries in downtown Buford as well as the artist colony buildings, which were previously home to leather manufacturers. The colony is called Tannery Row Artist Colony and includes talents in paint, sculpting and more. In this quaint spot, people can actually watch the artists working quite a perk for those who are interested!
