About Americus, GA

Located near the state borders of both Florida and Alabama, Americus is a charming and quaint Southern city with a rich history and strong educational community. While the closest larger city is Columbus, Plains, a small city in the Americus area, is perhaps more famous as the home of former President Jimmy Carter.
