Richest Cities In Georgia

Georgia is a great place to live, and it’s no surprise that the state is home to some of the wealthiest communities in the country. In fact, several richest cities in Georgia —including Rome, Evans and Snellville —are actually among the top 25 richest places in America. Here are even more!


Rome is the richest city in Georgia, with a median household income of $59,037. Located in Floyd County, Rome’s population is about 53,000 people and it has a land area of 9.5 square miles (24 km2). The City Hall building was built in 1870 and houses city offices as well as community events such as an annual fair held each year on Labor Day weekend.

Rome has many attractions including Heritage Park which commemorates the heritage of its residents; a museum featuring exhibits on local history; several historical buildings that date back to the colonial era; a public library where you can borrow books or use computers if you don’t have one at home; several churches including St Peter’s Episcopal Church which was founded during Colonial days when slavery wasn’t outlawed yet but still existed within society everywhere else so those who wanted freedom couldn’t leave their homes without risking arrest from their owners or worse yet death by hanging depending upon how much money they had left over after paying taxes etcetera. 


The city of Evans, Georgia is home to approximately 127,000 people. It’s also the wealthiest city in Georgia—with a median household income of $100K and a median house value of $270K.

The average age of residents in Evans is 38 years old, which makes it one of the youngest cities on our list (along with Columbus). The racial makeup of this area is almost entirely white: 97% Caucasian or European versus 2% African American or African/Black/African-American descent and 1% Asian descent (1%).


Buford is a city in Gwinnett County, Georgia, United States. The population was 7,853 at the 2010 census. Buford is a suburb of Atlanta and located in the northeastern part of the county.

Buford was founded in 1854 as “Bouffville” by John Bryan Williams (1817–1895), who named it after his wife’s family name. It was incorporated as a town on December 9th 1924; it became an independent city on July 1st 1944.


Gainesville is the richest city in Georgia, with a population of about 65,000. It’s known for its golf courses and parks, which are home to some of the oldest municipal parks in the country. The University of Georgia is also located here—and if you’re lucky enough to be attending college there right now as well as taking part in one of their many extracurricular activities like sports or performing arts then maybe your campus life has been less than fulfilling since graduation? Maybe it feels like everyone else has had better summers than you? Well then maybe it’s time for some fun!

Gainesville has plenty of things to do aside from going on adventures around town or hitting up its many bars and restaurants (which we’ll get into later). There are tons of museums located within walking distance from each other; this means that even if you don’t want to go somewhere specific there’s still plenty left on your list after seeing one museum today would have taken up all day yesterday afternoon before heading back home tonight without having seen any new sights along the way–which would have been fine except now we’ve come back into town again tomorrow morning instead.


Newnan is the county seat of Coweta County, which also includes the city of Social Circle. The town has a population of 43,085 people according to the 2010 census.

Newnan’s economy is mostly centered on agriculture and manufacturing. It was once known as the “Crossroads City” because it was located between two major highways: Interstate 75 and Interstate 20 (now called State Route 40). In addition to being home to several large industrial plants at one time or another over the years—including Union Carbide—Newnan also served as an important railroad junction during its heyday in the mid-20th century when train tracks passed through town from southward toward Chattanooga; northward toward Atlanta; east/west through Atlanta itself; and finally back again toward southwest Georgia via Birmingham or Savannah via Macon/Statesboro/Augusta. 


Snellville is a city in Gwinnett County, Georgia, United States. The population was 19,966 in the 2010 census. It is a suburb of Atlanta and part of the Atlanta metropolitan area.

The Richest Families In Georgia 

The Ferst family

The Ferst family is the richest family in Georgia and one of the largest real estate empires in America. They own more than 70 properties across their native state, including many hotels and casinos that cater to travelers from all over the world. In fact, if you can imagine the building process, chances are good that a member of this clan has had a hand in its construction or renovation!

The patriarch of this clan—named John—was born during World War I to parents who owned several businesses together. His father was killed during battle when he stepped on an enemy grenade; his mother died shortly thereafter due to heart trouble brought on by grief over losing her husband and son at once.

As for young John himself: after graduating high school at age 16 years old, he went right back into business with his sister Mary Anne (who became known as “the Queen”). Together they opened up their first restaurant called “The Horseshoe Lounge” which quickly became popular among locals looking for something different than typical steakhouse fare served up inside those establishments located further south towards Alabama/Florida line.”
