The roots of Snellville are a true American Dream story. Londoners Thomas Snell and James Sawyer sailed to the New World in 1874 and traveled from New York to Georgia. The immigrants founded a small settlement called "Snell" near Stone Mountain, which became Snellville in 1923. Snell's descendants remain in the Atlanta, GA and Houston, TX areas, and Snell and Sawyer's working class determination continues to build up the city today. City Hall employs over 100 employees in five active departments, and the 1,150-plus businesses that operate in town generate well over $1 billion of annual income. Don't be fooled by the numbers, however. The city remains a quaint 10.4 square miles.
You can't ask for more when looking for a home in Snellville, GA.
