You can be proud to say you live in a Flowery Branch apartment, a small community with a nice history and located on the shores of beautiful Lake Lanier just fifty miles from Atlanta. Flowery Branch was originally named Anaguluskee, which is a Cherokee Indian word that means "flowers on the branch," thus, the pretty name. The city was incorporated in 1874.
In 2008, Stonebridge Shopping Center opened along 985 in Flowery Branch. It is situated at the corner of Spout Springs and Hog Mountain. The center boasts a Target, Kohl's, Home Depot, Rue 21, TJ Max, Ross, Starbucks, and many restaurants for dining away from your Flowery Branch Apartment. Other than the shopping center, the city possesses remarkable restaurants and plenty of quaint shops as well. One trip you might want to make while living here is to visit the over 100 year old historic train depot and the famed caboose. Weddings, receptions and meetings of all kinds are held in this one-of-a-kind location.
While no national sports teams are from this city, for those of you Flowery Branch apartment-ites who get into pro games, the National Football League Atlanta Falcons training camp has been located in Flowery Branch since the beginning of the 2001 season. And pro Baseball Hall of Famer Phil Niekro, who played 20 seasons for the Atlanta Braves, is a Flowery Branch resident, in addition to international car driver Johnny O'Connell, who lists Flowery Branch as his hometown.
With the beauty, the shopping and the famed residents, and sometimes residents of the football team, apartment-ites here can't go wrong.
