The City of Griffin was founded by Lewis Lawrence Griffin, President of the Monroe Railroad and Banking Company. Our city played an important role during the Civil War, offering medical services and a hospital. There are many soldiers from both sides of the Civil War buried in Stonewall Confederate Cemetary, operated and maintained by the City of Griffin.

Following the war, Griffin became a manufacturing center, and it maintains a large part of this image today. The City of Griffin, incorporated in 1843, is a vibrant and growing community that is home to approximately 23,000 residents. The city successfully combines old town charm with big city convenience to create a welcoming atmosphere. Griffin offers excellent schools and recreational facilities, as well as progressive businesses and industries. The City of Griffin offers a complete package of services, including electric, water & wastewater, curbside garbage pickup and other amenities.

Griffin is approximately 40 miles south of Atlanta and 55 miles north of Macon.

One of Griffin, Georgia's most famous residents, John Henry "Doc" Holliday, was born August 14, 1851 and baptized march 21, 1852 in the Presbyterian Church in Griffin. After receiving a degree from Pennsylvania College of Dental Surgery, he moved back to Georgia and had a successful practice in Downtown Griffin before ill-health forced his move out west. He died November 8, 1887 in Glenwood Springs, Colorado.
