BANKS CROSSING: SHOPPERS PARADISE IN A RURAL SETTING

Banks Crossing, in rural northeast Georgia, is flourishing largely because of its location at the intersection of Interstate 85 and Highway 441. The junction is about half way between Atlanta and Greenville, South Carolina, making it a natural stop for motorists. The two highways carry an estimated 50,000 vehicles a day past the retail strip. I-85 is a major north-south highway linking East Coast cities such as New York City and Washington, D.C., to Atlanta and other southern cities. Highway 441 is a popular route for Floridians traveling to the Appalachian Mountains, and on football weekends, thousands of University of Georgia fans take the highway to Athens, home of the university. This article provides a brief history of the area's economic development.
