About Northwest Georgia
This fifteen county region in the northwest corner of Georgia is the home to the state’s first inland terminal, a powerful logistics rail gateway to and from the Port of Savannah. Operated by CSX and the Georgia Ports Authority, it will serve as an economic development boon for the state and entire southeast U.S. while removing an estimated 50,000 trucks from local highways each year.
Region 1 is steeped in history, outdoor life and leisure activities. From Gibbs Garden in Ball Ground, historic Berry College in Rome, and Chickamauga National Military Park in Ft. Oglethorpe, to historic Blue Ridge in Fannin County and the Booth Western Museum in Cartersville, this unique area offers abundant business opportunity in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
