Welcome

Welcome to Polk County, Georgia, the place where life and business are relaxed, yet productive. Our location only one hour west of Atlanta and its Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport – and part of the ABC (Atlanta-Birmingham-Chattanooga) Triangle – means we can grow our businesses with all the benefits of being close to the Southeast’s major centers of industry, while growing our families in the friendly, unhurried communities of Cedartown, Rockmart or Aragon.

Formed in 1851 and named for the 11th U.S. President, James K. Polk, Polk County has a history that incorporates Native Americans, rock quarries, railroads and textile mills … but that’s history. The future includes a new Polk Medical Center, a wide array of industry, invigorating recreational opportunities, inclusive community events and modern neighborhoods that offer a small-town vibe.
