Senoia Georgia is back in business again!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Richard Weisser Realty

 

Senoia GA USAOnce, Senoia Georgia was a thriving mill town that prospered in the heyday of the textile industry. But when the mill closed, the town went into hibernation for about twenty-five years.

All of that changed when housing developments began to spring up in the area at the turn of the 21st century. All of a sudden, the sleepy little town had a population that could support more viable businesses.

And so restaurants, shops, and offices have opened in the historic downtown area. And the little hamlet was transformed into a self-sufficient community. And you might even run into a crowd on a Saturday afternoon!

New buildings have been constructed to blend in with the style and architecture of the town’s historic past. Walking in downtown Senoia is like stepping a hundred years into the past!

If you haven’t visited Senoia in the last ten years or so, you might want to consider spending a day there.

You won’t be disappointed!

Hi Tammy,

It is indeed in Coweta County.

We like McGuire's, a cool Irish Pub style restaurant, or the more upscale Founder's Restaurant. For a change, the Redneck Gourmet is fun. All are downtown less than a few hundred feet from each other.

Also, the Senoia Coffee Company makes an excellent cup of Joe, and don't forget to visit the Southern Living 2010 Idea House while you're there.! Admission is $10.

We have Mill towns scatered about Charlotte. Each one seeking a phoenix factor to renew. Many ,unfortunatelly, have been dismantled and sent overseas. I wonder what the next big thing for these cities is.

That's picture postcard material... what a beautiful street. I love streets like this. Quaint, the scale is very human, each shop has it's own front and personality. Give a town half a chance and it will find it's tone for the future. I love the idea of building new with respect to the past.

Richard,

I just love it when this happens, and a town is able to revitalize. I much prefer small downtowns to the nameless big box stores.

First of all I second Richard's culinary selections.  All incredible!

I remember when Senoia was just a small town on the way to I-75, but it has pulled a 180 recently.  The Southern Living Idea Home is part of a huge brownstone development that will have townhomes (actually the Idea Home is one of the townhomes), single family detached & light commercial.  10 years ago I never would have pictured something like that in Senoia.

Also, they have been shooting several movies and television shows at their Riverwood Studios, which was drawn to the town because of it's historic charm and lack of big box development that you see in areas that have been overwhelmed with urban sprawl.  Here's an article from yesterday's paper:
