Located in the west central part of the state of Georgia, LaGrange is a city of about 30,000 and county seat of Troup County. It covers an area of about 112 miles, of which around 111 miles is land. This principal city of Georgia Metropolitan Statistical Area is perfect for both families and businesses.
The LaGrange area was originally inhabited by the Creek Indians. It was settled in the early 19th century after it was ceded by the locals. The city was named for the country estate of General Marquis de La Fayette near Paris. The French and American hero, who visited the state of Georgia several times, had observed to Governor Troup on one of his visits that the local landscape reminded him of his estate back in France. This somewhat influenced the townspeople to opt for LaGrange as their town’s name. The city was incorporated in 1828.
LaGrange is a progressively growing city. The number of people here was estimated at 30,695 as of 2015, up from about 26,000 in 2000. There were more than 11,000 households in the city as of 2013. It offers families one of the most comfortable and affordable places to own a home in Georgia. The city is the principal provider of utilities, such as electricity, water, natural gas, sewer, and refuse collection, in the region. This means home buyers should expect nothing but the best when it comes to utilities.
With its strategic location, the city has transformed from a railroad center into a major transportation hub in the region. It is traversed in its eastern section by Interstate 85 and Interstate 185. Interstate 85 runs northeast to Atlanta and southwest to Montgomery in Alabama. Interstate extends from LaGrange southward to Columbus, Ohio. Several U.S. and state routes also run within the city, which has the LaGrange-Callaway Airport to its southwest. LaGrange also lies south of Atlanta’s Hartsfield International Airport, which is regarded as the world’s busiest airport.
This is not just a place that will appeal only to families, but also to businesses. The enterprise city, the number of whose inhabitants with at least a Bachelor’s degree is around the national average, has a lot to attract businesses. Little wonder LaGrange bills itself as “a place where business gets done.” It was the founding place for the world’s largest carpet tile manufacturer, Interface, which still maintains significant presence there. The city also has the North American headquarters of the forestry division of Caterpillar.
One of the selling points of LaGrange is its location in the vicinity of West Point Lake, a major tourist attraction in the area. The 26,000-acre lake with a shoreline extending some 500 miles is a great destination for residents and visitors to enjoy bass fishing and exciting water sports.
The city is home to Bellevue, the historic home of Senator Benjamin Harvey Hill, which is a classic example of awesome Greek Revival architecture. LaGrange College, Georgia’s oldest private college, is also located there.
Named into the same class as top cities such as New York, Singapore and Toronto in 2000 as “Intelligent Community of the Year,” LaGrange is a city always working to create conducive environment for both businesses and families. It offers visitors and residents a lot to see and do.
