Flowery Branch – Origin of Name

When I wondered how Flowery Branch GA got its name, Bob C. was quick to respond:

Chartered in 1874, this little town is one of the oldest in Hall County. It was first called Anaguluskee, a Cherokee Indian word meaning “flowers on the branch.”

Its railroad tracks are a landmark, and the circa 1900 train depot has recently been moved. Local residents plan to restore it as a town center.

In 1980, Flowery Branch had 755 residents. Twenty years later, the city’s population has exploded to more than 1,600 as residents have flocked to South Hall County.
