City of Byron Georgia | Byron Real Estate | Warner Robins HomesWeary travelers, sightseers, and the rest of ya'll...Come visit beautiful Byron, Georgia, and see southern hospitality at its finest.

The city of Byron, Georgia, was incorporated in 1874 and originally thrived as a farm town and as a railroad station for the Southwestern Railroad.  The city's first mayor, Dr. C.H. Richardson, named the city after his favorite poet, Lord George Gordon (Noel) Byron.

In the early 1900s, Byron GA was a bustling peach supplier during the fruit season.  That success culminated in Byron being one of the south's biggest peach growers and shipping areas during the 1920s.

Byron Georgia is the home of the annual Battle of Byron, which started as a competition in 1979 to help spur community improvements.

Downtown Byron is the home of a renovated 1870 Depot Museum and Caboose, Jailhouse Park, and a variety of antebellum homes.

For antique lovers, Byron GA has the Big Peach Antiques Mall, which showcases more than 160 dealers.  Next door, car enthusiasts can visit The Generation Gap, which is a Classic Car Emporium.

Arlene/Tracey...Aren't their peaches the best!  I'll be posting several city posts in the next week so you need to come up with your husband in the spring and see all we have to offer.

Ginny...Crazy is right but it should be in the low 60s today and sunny.  Gray skies are not my cup of tea!

They are wonderful Joshua.  Plump and juicy...they taste even better in homemade ice cream.  ;-)

Thanks Dorie/Bill...just trying to make sure all our areas are recognized.  Hope you're ready for 2011!

Anita,

Thanks for commenting on my blog; I stopped by to reciprocate.  I've been to your fair town, but it was decades ago when I was in college in Columbia, SC.
