Greene County History

Greene County dates back to 1786 and was named for the patriot Nathaniel Greene, who ranked next to General George Washington during the Revolutionary War. He lived in the state for just one year before his death, but is remembered in both the name of the county and the county’s seat, Greensboro.

Greene County real estate includes five historic communities: Greensboro, Union Point, White Plains, Siloam, and Woodville. Georgia’s Lake Country is only an hour away from Atlanta, which makes it an easy weekend destination for city dwellers. Georgia’s second-largest lake, Lake Oconee, provides a stunning, resort-like backdrop for fishing, boating, swimming, or even just picnics on its grassy shore. Lake Oconee gets its name from the Creek language, and means “Great Waters,” which perfectly describes the opportunities it affords. Residents appreciate the world-class golfing opportunities, picturesque downtown neighborhoods and shopping, or the still serenity of down-home rural Georgia.

 

Greene County Recreation

Fine diners will appreciate the myriad of restaurants that include Italian, Mexican and Thai cuisines. The Yesterday Café specializes in classic Southern home cooking that was recently recognized by Southern Living Magazine as having the best buttermilk pie in all of Georgia!

Greene County offers guided tours of a number of historic sites well-loved by locals and tourists alike. The historic sites in Greensboro include landmarks, plantations, and museums that trace the history of the South through both triumph and tragedy. For the homeowner who wants it all, you can’t do better than Greene County homes.

County events include the annual Southland Jubliee held in downtown Greensboro that features music, dancing, food, and arts & crafts.

 

Greene County Education

The Greene County School System has been recommended for accreditation by the AdvancedED, the largest community of education professionals in the world. Lake Oconee Academy, a college preparatory charter school, was honored as a 2014 National Blue Ribbon School.
