The best way to describe our life here on the shores of Lake Lanier is peaceful. Many have found this is a wonderful place to call home; a place to work, live, and play. Flowery Branch is blessed to have a long history dating back to when "Cotton was King", and when the big iron horse brought prosperity to the area. The Southern Railway System laid its tracks from Charlotte to Atlanta in 1873 and Flowery Branch was officially established as a city the following year. Located on the shores of Lake Lanier, Flowery Branch has managed to maintain its hometown atmosphere.
Today, that same prosperity is evident in the revitalization of the old Flowery Branch downtown. Remarkably, the same desire that brought many to Flowery Branch so long ago has lured a new corporate identity to the area, with a strong desire to protect that cherished hometown feeling. Maybe that is why Flowery Branch has been recognized in regional magazines with the new theme, "A remarkable past, a very bright future."
