Gainesville, the county seat, is the heart of the region’s poultry processing industry, but its residential and industrial growth has been steady and high quality, due in part to its proximity to Lake Lanier. One of the wealthiest communities outside the metro-Atlanta area, Gainesville serves as a second home for many prosperous Atlantans with a passion for boating. The parkland in the area includes 443 acres of beautiful land for recreation and leisure. The Roosevelt Square and the Roosevelt Monument reside in Gainesville, and President Franklin D. Roosevelt himself dedicated them in 1938. The Arts Council provides performing, literary, and visual arts for viewers to enjoy across Northeast Georgia.

Lake Lanier

Lake Lanier, although not incorporated, is evolving into a discrete waterside residential/recreational community, while municipalities such as Flowery Branch and Lula offer distinctive historic attractions.
