Lavonia is a small town located in Franklin County in northeast Georgia. As of the 2000 census, the population was 1,827. The land that is now Lavonia first belonged to the Cherokee tribe. White settlers began moving into the area after the Revolutionary War, and the town of Lavonia was founded with the coming of the railroad in northeast Georgia. As was typical of many communities of the era, the town was built up around the railroad. Called the "Big Time Small Town," Lavonia has a friendly hometown atmosphere, but with a progressive attitude. Nestled in the foothills of northeast Georgia, it's the perfect base town for those visiting nearby Lake Hartwell. Other attractions in the area include Tugaloo State Park. Situated on a wooded peninsula, Tugaloo is surrounded by the beauty of the 55,900-acre Lake Hartwell. Activities in the park include swimming, sailing, boating, fishing and camping. Hiking trail winds through oak, walnut, mulberry and cherry trees. The word "Tugaloo" is an Indian name for the river which once flowed freely before to the construction of Hartwell Dam. Victoria Bryant State Park is also near the town of Lavonia. This state park offers a golf course with clubhouse, two ponds for fishing, picnicking along a stream and hiking trails through the woods. A nature center, 3 playgrounds, a swimming pool and camping is also available at Victoria Bryant.
