From humble beginnings as a simple trading post, Augusta has grown into one of the fastest-growing cities in Georgia. Not only is it the second oldest city in the state, it is now ranked as the second largest metropolitan area after Atlanta. This is due in large part to tremendous growth in business, industry, and banking.
Located on the banks of the Savannah River, which forms the boundary between Georgia and South Carolina, Augusta's mild climate and southern hospitality and charm encourages visitors to choose to become permanent residents. This historic city counts many persons of note, from presidents to country singers, as having roots here. It is also known as the host city of the world-renowned Masters Golf Tournament. Just down the road is the Fort Gordon Army Compound.
