Just a couple minutes out of the city center, you can find peach and pecan orchards, and a number of recreational activities.
A Brief History Of Byron GA
In its infancy, Byron was just a blip on a map surrounded by a large belt of productive farmland owned by industrious people. Being located on the Southwestern Railroad, the town saw steady and substantial growth. Within 50 years, Byron was one of the largest peach-growing and shipping areas in the South.
A couple decades later, in the early ’40s, our country was at war. The infrastructure that was used to ship peaches started sending 40 to 50 freight cars loaded with war supplies every day.
When I-75 opened in the 1960s, Byron was suddenly a city on the map where thousands passed by daily. As a result, motels, restaurants, and service stations were constructed over the next 30 years.
