The city of Gainesville is the county seat of Hall County, Georgia. As of the 2010 census, the city had a population of 33,804. Because of its large number of poultry processing plants, it is often called the “Poultry Capital of the World”.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 29.1 square miles, of which, 27.1 square miles of it is land and 2.0 square miles of it (6.94%) is water.

Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, parts of Gainesville lie along the shore of one of the nation’s most popular inland water destinations, Lake Lanier. Named after Georgia author and musician Sidney Lanier, the lake was created in 1956 when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers dammed the Chattahoochee River near Buford, Georgia and flooded an Appalachian mountain valley. Although created primarily for hydroelectricity and flood control, it also serves as a reservoir providing water to the city of Atlanta. The lake is also a very popular recreational attraction for all of north Georgia.

Much of Gainesville is heavily wooded, with both deciduous and coniferous trees.

From the official city of Gainesville website

The City of Gainesville, county seat of Hall County, is located in Northeast Georgia, approximately 50 miles northeast of Atlanta and 100 miles southwest of Greenville, South Carolina. Gainesville is the largest of six cities in Hall County with a population of more than 35,000. As the business hub for Northeast Georgia, Gainesville’s daytime population is estimated in excess of 100,000.

The City of Gainesville remains financially sound operating on a fiscal year budget. In cooperation with the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce and other community organizations, the City actively recruits new industry to the area while working with existing industry to encourage expansion, growth, and diversification.

The assessed value of taxable property in Gainesville as of January 2014 was $4.9 billion. That’s a 5.8 % increase from the previous year ($4.7 billion).

When it comes to location, Gainesville is second to none. Located at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the 19th largest City in the state is surrounded on three sides by Lake Sidney Lanier. Gainesville is small enough to know your neighbor, yet large enough to offer the services and cultural experiences of a much larger city. Gainesville will be 194 years old on Nov. 30.
