Many might consider Mount Zion a bedroom community of Carrollton, but local residents will tell you that the natural beauty of the area is really what makes Mount Zion an attractive residential real estate market for families, retirees, and everyone in between.
Mount Zion sits on a hill in the midst of the rolling northwest Georgia countryside. Just five miles south of Interstate 20 and eight miles west of Carrollton, Mount Zion is a convenient location to all of West Georgia and the west Atlanta area by road. It is also home to the area’s only public airport, the West Georgia Regional Airport, also known as O.V. Gray Field. Residents of Mount Zion number around 1,700, and they enjoy a peaceful rural setting with lots of farmland and wooded areas. Mount Zion offers an advantage to those looking to build a home, since many lots for sale are on the real estate market. Large lots are available, as are land/farm real estate opportunities.
The Mount Zion real estate market has made the community a popular choice for young adults, especially families with children. Residents enjoy a laid-back, rural lifestyle in Mount Zion, yet they live close enough to the conveniences of Carrollton and other cities in the region to enjoy those amenities as well. As a result, the population of Mount Zion has grown by 35% in the past 15 years and currently stands at approximately 1,700 residents. The median age of Mount Zion residents is 30. Families with children love the convenience of three local schools, Mount Zion Elementary School, Mount Zion Middle School, and Mount Zion High School, home of the Eagles. The schools are part of the Carroll County School System. In addition to the variety of school activities available to students and their families, the Mount Zion Recreation Department offers athletics programs throughout the year, including basketball, football, softball, baseball, and cheerleading programs. The city’s recreation complex also hosts baseball and softball tournaments throughout the year, attracting teams from all over the region and state.
Mount Zion is just five miles from John Tanner Park, a popular local destination that includes a lake with a large sand swimming beach, boating, fishing, and other recreational opportunities. The city also maintains a community library through its partnership with the West Georgia Regional Library System, and the Mount Zion Community and Senior Center offers weekly bingo games and meals, as well as other entertainment for local residents throughout the year. Mount Zion’s proximity to Carrollton and Bremen also means convenient access to quality healthcare. Both Tanner Medical Center in Carrollton and Higgins General Hospital in Bremen are just a few miles down the road from Mount Zion. Each hospital has a 24-hour emergency department, as well as a wide range of inpatient and outpatient services and a well-trained staff that bring an exceptional level of medical care to residents in the city and surrounding area.
An annual highlight in Mount Zion is the city’s Founder’s Day Festival, held each year on the first Saturday in October. Festivalgoers enjoy a morning parade, followed by food, entertainment, vendors, games, and lots more. The Founder’s Day Festival is one of the region’s most popular fall festivals and a highlight of the year for local residents.
All these reasons and more make Mount Zion a prime location for real estate investments in residential, commercial, and property development opportunities.
