Hickory Flat - half Canton and half Woodstock
Ideal for country living
Hickory Flat is an unincorporated community in southeastern Cherokee County approximately 40 miles from downtown Atlanta. The center of the community is the intersection of Hickory Flat Highway (aka 140) and East Cherokee Dr. Once a sparsely populated farming community, this quiet little area has gained in popularity in recent years. There are several new developments going in along Hickory Road if brand new homes are your style.
Parts of Hickory Flat are considered Canton and parts are considered Woodstock. From the E. Cherokee/140 intersection it’s approximately 15 minutes to I-575 and roughly 20-25 minutes to highway 400. To its north along highway 140 is a subsection of Hickory Flat known to locals as Indian Knoll. This area in the middle of rolling farm land is a literal geographic knoll where Native American tribes would meet.
Hickory Flat is considered “the country,” where homes have larger lot sizes, neighborhoods are smaller, and it’s dotted with farmland throughout. My neighborhood only has 34 homes in it, for instance. Cagle Farms on Stringer Rd. is a delightful family run farm that gives tours, they have a corn maze in the fall, and they have Pick-Your-Own days throughout the summer. You’ll see little vegetable stands here and there driving around town where you can grab some farm fresh eggs or produce on your way home from work. The houses typically have bigger than average yard sizes, many with acreage, so if you are willing to give up easy freeway access in return you’ll get a bigger house with more land for less money.
