Situated less than 12 miles west of Augusta, Georgia and considered part of the Augusta Metro Area, the cozy city of Grovetown is a suburban community directly north of Fort Gordon, an active US Army installation dating back to 1917. Apartments in Grovetown provide plenty of commuting options for those working in Augusta, including I-20, Wrightsboro Road, and Highway 78. Residents of Grovetown are able to enjoy events at the Augusta National Golf Club, home of the Master's Tournament. With the Savannah River forming a natural border between Georgia and South Carolina, residents can easily reach North Augusta, as well.
Grovetown isn't just a suburb of Georgia's second-largest city. This tree-filled, friendly city provides top-rated schools, attractive neighborhoods, and a large medical community that functions as a major employer for the area. Grovetown is part of the Central Savannah River Area, or CSRA, a major trade region of Georgia and South Carolina.
Along with plenty of Southern charm, azalea blooms, and magnolia trees, Grovetown features some beautiful parks and the Euchee Creek Greenway, a trail leading from Grovetown to the Savannah River. Grovetown Trails at Euchee Creek are paved with boardwalks and a pond. Goodale Park, located off Wrightsboro Road, features a playground, walking trails, and ball fields.
Grovetown developed during the early 1800s, when it was a stop on the Georgia Railroad. Back then, it was known as Belair, but the name was changed when the city was incorporated in 1881. Grovetown once served as a summer retreat for Augusta's wealthy residents, and it was home of famous poet Paul Hamilton Hayne.
