Historic Hogansville was incorporated in 1870. Today, it is a small town with a thriving business community, located in Troup County between Atlanta and Columbus, Georgia. The city is proud of its many architecturally and historically significant properties, including the outdoor amphitheater, train depot, the Royal Theater, and the Grand Hotel. Hogansville's residential areas include affordable housing communities and historic properties.
The Hogansville Merchants Association is very active in the community. With its many unique shops, downtown Hogansville is an antique mecca in West Central Georgia.
Hogansville is also the location of one of Georgia's favorite fall festivals, the annual Hummingbird Festival.
City Hall is located in the renovated Royal Theater on Main Street. The theater was built in 1937 and was operated as a movie theater for many years before it fell into disrepair. The building and land were donated to the city in 1981 by Ralph Howard, Sr., and J. Ralph Matthews, Sr. Several years later, the city renovated part of the building which it now uses as city offices.
