The city was first chartered in 1874 and is known as one of the oldest cities within Hall County, Georgia. The name Flowery Branch is derived from the Cherokee tribe's word "anaguluskee," which means "flowers on the branch." The rural town was known for its railroad tracks in the early 1900s; however, they are no longer functioning. In 1980, Flowery Branch had just less than 800 residents, and more than two decades later, the number of people residing in the quaint community is continuing to increase each year.
