Less well-known than the “other” Dallas, this one is named after E.J. Davis — whose hometown was Dallas, Texas. Originally developed as a stopover for stagecoaches traveling between Atlanta and Rome, it became known as the “Crossroads of Georgia” in the 1800s for its central location in the state. Dallas has also been home to several notable residents, including two former state governors.
Dallas’ economy has always been based on agriculture, providing a haven for the farmers markets that the locals enjoy. With its population growth over the years, the city has many other industries and now, as well as a thriving downtown district full of shops, grocery stores, restaurants, and entertainment venues. Dallas also boasts several parks and recreation areas and plenty of historical attractions, including fine arts buildings, historical markers, and museums, proving it has much more to offer folks than just Southern hospitality.
