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. The Hummingbird Festival is held the third weekend of October.
The City of Hogansville is in the process of renovating its historic Royal Theater, and is hoping to have it open and operational as a multi-use theater by Summer 2024. 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 and it was used as Hogansville City Hall until June 2021.
The current Hogansville City Hall opened in June of 2021 and is located at 111 High Street, which was originally the Citizen's Bank and then later, PNC Bank.
