Milledgeville Development Trends
Milledgeville has seen a steady growth pattern throughout the County. Many of our existing Industries have expanded and added jobs and we have seen an influx of new smaller businesses opening. Due to the popularity of Lake Sinclair the County has seen many people retiring or relocating to Baldwin County. As a result of this influx of new people, the downtown business district has seen many new shops open and a renewed interest in the downtown area. The Historic District has completed Phase I of a five Phase Project to revitalize the district, adding green space, new lighting and benches all to enhance ones experience downtown. You can feel an energy in the air in Baldwin County that great things are happening and about to happen.
The opening of the Oconee River Greenway and Riverwalk links the shopping and dining opportunities of downtown Milledgeville to the recreational and educational benefits of the Oconee River. The Oconee River Greenway and Riverwalk recently opened Phase I, which includes 1.5 miles of paved multi-use trails, a boat ramp, fishing and viewing overlooks, and picnic areas. Construction of Phase II, which will extend the park north, will begin early next year.
Milledgeville has retained the charm of a small town with a vibrant downtown. Because of the two Colleges located in the Historic District we have the cultural and performing arts and with Lake Sinclair, the Bartram Forest and the Oconee River we have an abundance of outdoor recreation.
Baldwin County has initiated a "Keep Milledgeville Beautiful" program to compliment the "Keep America Beautiful" program. For two years in a row we worked within the guidelines of the America in Bloom organization to have Milledgeville recognized as a Community interested in the overall aesthetics of its County.
Baldwin County has several recycling centers and is actively pursuing ways to improve its recycling program. Many clubs and civic organizations work together in the adopt-a-highway program. The city, county, and state work together to keep Milledgeville and Baldwin County clean and beautiful.
Milledgeville and Baldwin County have seventeen buildings on The National Register of Historic Places: Andalusia; Atkinson Hall; Barrowville; Boykin Hall; Central Building, State Lunatic Asylum; Devereux-Coleman House; Fort-Hammond-Willis House; Fowler Apartments; Old Governor's Mansion; Old State Capitol; Old State Prison Building; Rockwell, Samuel, House; Roe-Harper House; Rutherford, John, House; Storehouse, State Lunatic Asylum; Thalian Hall; and Woodville.
