The city’s name was derived from a grove of locust trees that could been seen throughout the town, incorporated in 1893. Locust Grove is a tranquil community known for blending tradition with growth. A major rail distribution center for cotton, peaches and other farm products, the city has added retail business, distribution and other businesses to its growing economy.
Locust Grove's weather offers four distinct seasons, but winters and summers are short, giving way too long, gentle springs and falls. With this moderate weather, outdoor sports and cultural activities can take place year round. The Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic site, the Georgia Aquarium, the High Museum of Art and the Atlanta Zoo are just a few of the cultural options available in neighboring Atlanta.

Atlanta Dogwood Festival, Atlanta Jazz Festival and Georgia Renaissance Festival are resident favorites among the outdoor events. On any given night in nearby Atlanta, one can attend a Broadway musical, a symphony, Shakespearean theatre, numerous comedy shows, view fine art, hear a spoken word performance or attend one of dozens of concerts at venues all across the city.
