Discover Ball Ground, GA Real Estate
Ball Ground has grown leaps and bounds since its inception in 1882. Once a significant sporting and battle area for the Cherokee and Creek peoples, it became an agricultural goldmine as a result of the railroad. The town’s name is actually derived from the Indigenous game “stick ball” and the meadow grounds on which it was played. Demonstrations of the game are still performed today, and to honor these sacred spaces you’ll find the town peppered with informational, historical markers.
Present day Ball Ground has embraced and prioritized its historic richness, which directly benefits its flourishing community. Many of Ball Ground’s neighborhoods, new and old, are within walking distance to its town center area. It’s this walkability that draws people to this homey, quirk-imbued town. You’ll even find a rustic, wooden guidepost (about 12 steps from the town’s famous Burger Bus) indicating just how many steps in either direction local dining favs are. This town leaves an impression with its unforgettable personality, southern hospitality, and small-town charm.
The past is tangible in Ball Ground’s Historic District, which is home to a number of thriving shops, restaurants, and small businesses. But its magnetic attributes don’t end there. Ball Ground is chock full of picturesque parks and outdoor spaces. Local treasure, Gibbs Gardens, draws visitors from miles away to stroll through its floral, butterfly-flush wonderland. A stone’s throw from Canton (11 miles), both towns benefit from having a myriad of dining choices, events, and unique spaces to explore.
If Ball Ground’s history and hidden gems aren’t enough to sway you, maybe its shining school reputation will. It’s ranked high among the Best Public Schools in America and Best Places to Raise a Family in America according to Niche.
