If you’re looking for small town charm, a friendly place to spend a day or even a lifetime, great local restaurants and bistros, and gently rolling hills and natural beauty edged by two of Georgia’s greatest and most pristine rivers, the Altamaha and Ocmulgee, then we invite you to our cozy little city.
Hazlehurst, once thousands of acres of great pine forests that were the happy hunting grounds of the Creek and Cherokee, was established in 1870 as a rail town. Under the direction of Colonel George Hall Hazlehurst, the men of the Macon and Brunswick Railroad—it was also called the Central of Georgia Railroad—began chiseling the rail line southward from Macon, while at the same time workers from Brunswick carved the line northward. At the point where the two lines met, almost exactly halfway between the two cities, a depot sprang up and was first christened Mile Post 8—some called it Mile Post 8-1/2—but would soon be named Hazlehurst after the colonel.
With plenty of flower- and tree-lined streets, more-than-a-century-old homes and businesses combined with new industry and charming neighborhoods, a state-of-the-art municipal airport with a beautiful terminal and well-maintained airstrip, a 9-hole golf course framed by an abundance of trees and wildflower-filled woods, an award-winning school system, and so much more, Hazlehurst provides the perfect blend of both preservation and progress.
