Ball Ground is a growing community of more than 1,500 residents located in Cherokee County, Georgia — just north of metro Atlanta.

Cherokee County has been listed as one of the fastest growing counties in the country, and Ball Ground contributes to that statistic with a steady influx of new businesses, jobs and residents.

Quaint shops and eateries, a mix of residential options, and the beautiful scenery of the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains — it’s a fun place to visit and a great place to live!


Gilmer Ferry Road will be closed Wednesday, Aug. 26 for up to four hours beginning at 9:00AM.  This is due to the arrival of the Ball Ground Burger Bus. Once the bus is in place the road will open.  Cars will detour the same route used during movie filming.  Eighteen Wheelers/oversized trucks will detour I-575 to SR 20.

David Dean celebrates 20 Years of service with the City!  Thanks David for all you do!

DDA/Main St. Main St. Board will be sponsoring a scarecrow contests during the month of October.  Contact Karla for information.
