Buford

The City of Buford, located in northern Gwinnett County, has come a long way since its beginnings in 1872 as a depot on the railway line between Atlanta and Charlotte, North Carolina. Major domestic and international companies have established operations in Buford. The Buford Dam has become a major source of power for the state, and Lake Lanier Islands is recognized as a premier recreational development in the Southeast. Buford homes vary from traditional starter homes to luxury estates.

The recorded history of Buford began in the early 19th century. The area that is now Buford was originally Cherokee territory and despite the treaty in 1817 that ceded the territory to the United States and Gwinnett County’s legislative establishment in 1818, the area was still largely inhabited by Cherokee until the 1830s. The first non-Native American moved to the Buford area in the late 1820s or early 1830s, although the Buford area was not largely inhabited by non-Native Americans until the 1860s.

In 2008, CNN Money ranked Buford as number 3 in its annual “100 best places to live and start a business” list.

Buford has several walking trails throughout the city; over 7 miles of trails are accessible from both the Gwinnett Environmental & Heritage Center and the Mall of Georgia, as well as walking trails at Bogan and Buford Dam parks. Bogan Park also has several baseball fields and playgrounds as well as the Bogan Park Community Center and Family Aquatics Center. Buford Dam Park is next to Lake Lanier and has areas for swimming and other recreational activities. In addition to the parks run by Gwinnett County there are five city parks located throughout Buford, and a community center, which was completed in early 2012.

The southern part of Lake Sidney Lanier and the Lake Lanier Islands are also located in Buford, although outside of the official city limits.

And if you’re in the mood for shopping, the Mall of Georgia is the largest mall in the state of Georgia.
