Can anyone explain the origin of the name Social Circle? I was driving between Augusta and Atlanta and I saw the town's name mentioned on a billboard. I cannot imagine the source of the name. If you can help,thanks for the information.

Copied from:


A legend has been passed down about a group of men, meeting at the crossroads, who were sitting around the well having their usual drink. A stranger approached and was greeted with such warm hospitality, he said, "This is surely a social circle." From that time until the present, the name of the village has remained Social Circle. A replica of the original well now stands in the center of Social Circle and is more than just an eye-catcher for passing tourists. It's a symbol of the city's beginnings, and characterizes the spirit of the people of Social Circle and their friendship with others.
