Founded in 1892 by a native of England, and being conveniently located between Atlanta and Athens, Statham provides a tradition of small-town Southern charm and hospitality without the hassles of clogged traffic and other inconveniences common in nearby metropolitan areas.
Georgia Highway 316, between Atlanta and Athens, provides quick access to major interstate highways and puts us in the center of one of the fastest growing areas in the United States. Atlanta and Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport are only an hour away from Statham.
Residential and business development is promoted by low taxes, a progressive city government and a state-of-the-art water system. Low-cost manufacturing and warehouse space is available as well as good schools, churches, and a wide variety of cultural and recreational opportunities. Statham has two commercial parks: one on Atlanta Highway (Hwy 8) and the other on Highway 211 at 316.
