George Mifflin Dallas, the Southern statesman who served as Vice President under President James Polk, is the namesake of the illustrious city of Dallas, Georgia. Located a mere 12 miles west of Marietta, Dallas is a beautiful rural community just oozing with southern hospitality. Like many of the rapidly growing communities within the shadow of metropolitan Atlanta, Dallas offers safe, small-town living and spacious affordable housing. More than 5,000 residents enjoy a diverse choice of homes, many with acreage and views of gently rolling hills and leafy forests. Dallas is geographically positioned in northwest Paulding County within a 50-mile drive of Atlanta. It is the largest of three cities in Paulding County and is a popular destination for history buffs because of its well-preserved Civil War memorials and battlefields. The Pickett’s Mill Battlefield State Historic site is often described as “one of the best-preserved Civil War battlefields in the nation.” The site is preserved within 765-acre Pickett’s Mill State Park, where the public can enjoy three hiking trails, battlefield reenactments and an interactive museum. Nearby Red Top Mountain State Park also offers a diverse selection of outdoor recreational activities. In addition to being a part of the outstanding Paulding County School District, the city of Dallas has many exceptional amenities, such as a dynamic job market, low cost of living and a mild year-round climate. The Paulding Meadows Arts and Crafts Festival and the Raccoon Creek Music Festival are only two of the area’s exceptional annual events.
Homes in Dallas are a charming combination of traditional and modern elements characteristic of Paulding County.
