GAINESVILLE
Georgia, U.S.A.
POULTRY CAPITAL OF THE WORLD
Welcome to Gainesville, Georgia.
The city of Gainesville is home to around 34,000 people and is the county seat of Hall County. Gainesville is often called Poultry Capital of the World, because of its many poultry processing plants. Founded in the 1800s, Gainesville has long been a regional transportation and trade center. The previously small village called Mule Camp Springs, became known as Gainesville after war hero General Edmund G. Gaines. Situated in the glorious foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Gainesville is a heavily wooded city along the shore of Lake Lanier, named after Georgia author and musician Sidney Lanier. Initially, the lake was created to provide hydroelectricity and avoid flooding from surrounding rivers, but today it serves as a popular recreational destination for people from all over northern Georgia. Gainesville is today far from the raw forest it once was, and poises itself as a large industrial, medical and cultural center with a thriving economy. Downtown Gainesville will take you back in time with its historic buildings and eclectic assortment of shops, restaurants and small businesses, nestled in streets featuring a tasteful blend of old and new architecture. Regardless if you're here to visit or permanently relocate, Gainesville offers affordable living, world-class sporting events, excellent schools and unparalleled recreational options in a city where your neighbors will become your friends. As far as city attractions go, check out the Arts in the Square, an exhibition in downtown Gainesville where over 100 artists from northeastern Georgia showcase their work. Or catch a play at the Gainesville Theatre Alliance, a performing arts company and school, with an active ensemble since 1979!
