Burt Reynolds and then-wife Loni Anderson once bought an antebellum mansion in Loganville and named it Tara from Scarlett’s home in “Gone with the Wind.” While it is no longer owned by Reynolds or Anderson, Tara is still a reminder of the grandeur once prevalent in the Old South.
With a population of just 55,000 people, Loganville is reminiscent of old southern charm. It’s a town resplendent in Southern hospitality but able to provide access to the entertainment and activities found in the metropolis of nearby Atlanta. This small suburban town straddles both Gwinnett and Walton counties and is located less than an hour from downtown Atlanta.
