How did Sugar Hill ge

The area that is now known as Sugar Hill was once no more than a transit throughway between the neighboring cities of Buford, which had railroad access, and Cumming, which did not. Freight wagons regularly passed through the Sugar Hill area in order to bring goods from the train station in Buford into Cumming. According to Sugar Hill's city government, the lore surrounding the town's official name is related to this transport process. According to the story, one of these freight wagons broke down on a hill and spilled its contents, which happened to be a cartload of large bags of sugar.

Enjoying Nearby Lake

Created by damming a section of the Chestatee River in the mid-1900s, Lake Lanier is a 38,000-acre treasure for the Atlanta area. Though people from all over northern Georgia flock to this outdoor recreation hotspot, Sugar Hill residents are lucky to be able to call the lake a local resource, as the city is partially situated along Lake Lanier's southernmost banks. With the lake so close at hand, locals can easily access its many recreational opportunities, which include boating, camping, and fishing. There are also a resort and a waterpark on site at Lake Lanier, adding yet another dimension of fun for Sugar Hill locals.
