Forsyth County: More Than Just a Bedroom Community for Atlanta

With its many unique communities, amazing school system and many recreational activities, Forsyth County has developed an identity separate from the greater Atlanta area over the years.  The county, which was originally created from a partitioned spot of Cherokee County in 1832, was named for Governor John Forsyth.

Although the county originally began as a poor, agricultural community, its economic base grew with the start of the poultry industry and several Georgian road projects.  Today, Forsyth County is home to many affluent professionals who left behind the higher cost of living in nearby Fulton County. The county consistently ranks among the top 10 fastest growing counties in the United States.
