Dawson County is close enough to the bustling metropolis of Atlanta to enjoy "big city" amenities, yet it is still a small mountain community that enjoys a slower pace. The real, down-to-earth neighbors, the code of honor by which they live and work, and the quality of life you only find in a small town attract people of all walks of life: those ready to retire, those in their prime earning years with young families, others embarking on an entrepreneurial second career, artists and business professionals - all looking for time to enjoy life rather than watch it rush by.
From Springer Mountain where the Appalachian Trail reaches its southern terminus to the shores of Lake Lanier and the banks of the rivers, it is a community of people that is as diverse as the terrain. Its history is rich and colorful with stories of Indians, gold and racing heroes. The future is full of promise and opportunity for Dawson County.
Whether you are looking for a place to locate your environmentally sound business, establish solid roots for your family, or take your next vacation, Dawson County is here to meet your needs.
