Flowery Branch is home of the Atlanta Falcons Training Camp and hugs the shores of Lake Lanier, the most visited lake in the United States covering 59 square miles of water and 692 miles of shoreline. Lake Lanier Islands is a great resort for the entire family with golfing, swimming, water slides, boat rentals and luxury hotel accommodations.
Founded in 1874 by a few settlers, it was originally called Anaguluskee which means flowers on the branch and eventually became known as Flowery Branch. In 1985 the National and State Registers for Historic Places recognized Main Street due to the numerous nineteenth century and early twentieth century buildings. Funding was provided to rehabilitate the old train depot and it is now used as a local community center, welcome center and museum.
Flowery Branch covers approximately 6 square miles and is home to 5,679 residents.
