About Cumming

Cumming, the county seat of Forsyth County, is an affluent upper middle class small city in the far north side of Metro Atlanta accessible via a 45 minute travel. It got its name from Colonel William Cumming, a renowned officer in the war of 1812.

Gold paved the way for this community’s economy to be kept afloat. The city went through its dark days during the Civil War and the Great Depression but things turned well with the discovery of the valuable treasures. The growth of the city may also be attributed to Georgia Route 400, which brings an influx of visitors who seek the natural beauty of the area and respite from the busy city life. Meanwhile, the soaring prices of houses in surrounding counties have led people to relocate to the much cheaper but equally picturesque neighborhoods of Cumming.

Relocating to Cumming will be easy for families, because the city houses some of the best schools in the Atlanta metropolitan area. The city is served by the Forsyth County School District, which handles dozens of elementary schools, and quite a number of middle and high schools. Meanwhile, weather is manageable throughout the four seasons, and harsh climate conditions rarely happen in the area.

If you are looking for a place filled with exciting activities, consider Cumming as your next place of residence. The Country Fair and Festival held each October at the Cumming Fairgrounds is not to be missed. The fair serves as an inexpensive family outing with free attractions, exhibits and discounts.
