Ball Ground is a growing community of nearly 2,000 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!
