Powder Springs, GA Overview

Founded in 1837 and named for its beautiful natural springs once thought to have medicinal properties, Powder Springs is a largely suburban bedroom community.  Young families and couples tend to be drawn to the newer residential communities of Powder Springs.  These affordable well-kept neighborhoods, along with a 20-mile commute into downtown Atlanta, are just two reasons why Powder Springs is an increasingly popular area among homebuyers.  Several of the city's namesake springs still flow today and are commemorated at Powder Springs Park.  In addition, the Seven Springs Historical Society celebrates the area’s unique history with interesting exhibits on the 1828 gold rush era, the Cherokee Indians, and the Civil War.

The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
