A Town Called Senoia


My husband and I were watching television one evening when a special came on about a small country town located not too far from us called Senoia, Georgia; located just southeast of Atlanta.  Its total area is 5.4 square miles.  At the 2010 U.S. census, there were 3,307 people residing there.  Living so close to Senoia and never having been there, after watching the television special, we decided to visit.  We found a quaint little town, seemingly frozen in time (reference the pictures found in this post.) We found it to be simplistic and leisurely – a great escape from the fast-paced lifestyle of the larger nearby cities. The citizens there are proud of their historic downtown, museums, antique treasures strewn throughout, their unique restaurants, even a race track.  In fact, Southern Living Magazine chose Senoia as the site of its 2010 and 2012 Idea House. These houses are designer showcases of the finest trends in home design and furnishings.  We certainly enjoyed our visit.
