About

Griffin, GA

Overview of Griffin

Halfway between Atlanta and Macon, Griffin is a quintessential Southern community in the heart of Georgia, with a rich history, scenic small town feel and lush natural surroundings. Griffin is known as the Iris City for its iris growing.

People looking for apartments for rent in Griffin will find the city offers a great living environment, a range of things to do and an evolving character rooted in a sense of tradition.

Living in Griffin, GA

The area that would eventually hold Griffin was first settled by Spaniards in the mid 1500s. The area went through many changes of hands, with the English declaring it their property about a century later and finally, Americans claiming it as their own in 1764. Originally settled according to a lottery system, Griffin's early years were marked by agriculture, especially cotton, and growth was driven by the arrival of a rail line. An important gathering point during the Civil War, Griffin hosted two major Confederate camps. During Reconstruction, the area experienced a boom from the arrival of the textiles industry, and Griffin continues to be an important place for textiles and manufacturing.

Today, the seat of Spalding County is home to nearly 24,000 people, and residents of Griffin apartments can take advantage of a busy downtown, great recreation and a lively community.

Griffin Work and Study

A relatively recent addition to the University of Georgia system, UGA Griffin is a growing local academic presence offering a range of undergraduate and graduate degrees. Griffin students can also take on one of nearly 200 programs of study at Southern Crescent Technical College.

With a broad economic base that has traditionally been rooted in manufacturing, Griffin's economy is diverse and expanding with investments in education and healthcare. Major employers include Caterpillar, cotton mill Southern Terry Inc. and locally headquartered school supplies company Norcom, among other area manufacturers.
