History of Smoke Rise, Georgia
The area where Smoke Rise now resides was once populated by Native American families more than 12,000 years ago. In the 1800s, the land become heavily used for cotton and corn farms until the Battle of Atlanta during the Civil War forced farmers to take up arms instead of farming the land. Once the war was over, cotton farming returned to prominence until the area’s boll weevil infestation decimated crops and the depression decimated hopes. Over time, farming became less and less prominent and more homes and businesses started being built in the area. The town got its name in the 1960s when a developer named Bill Probst coined it during one of the area’s home building development phases.
