Gainesville Georgia, is located on the shores of Lake Lanier and in the foothills of the Appalachian trail and the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Originally called Mule Camp Springs, Gainesville was settled near the crossing of two historic Indian trails. In 1821 when Hall County was established, Gainesville was made the county seat. Gainesville is home to many chicken processing plants and is often called the chicken capital of the world. Currently, the population of Gainesville is close to 30,000 people.
As a recreation destination for many of the citizens of Georgia, Lake Lanier is one of the largest lakes in Georgia. The lake was named in honor of Georgia author and musician Sidney Lanier and was created in 1958 when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers dammed the Chattahoochee River near Buford, Georgia flooding the Appalachian valley. Lake Lanier serves three main purposes for the citizens of Georgia: hydro-electricity, flood-control and as a reservoir providing water to the city of Atlanta.
Lake Lanier is an extremely popular and crowded recreation destination. There are many boating accidents, automobile accidents and tractor trailer accidents that occur near the Gainesville area as a result of Lanier activities. In addition, the chicken trucks and distribution outlets in Hall and Gwinnett Counties can create dangerous conditions for commuters.
