The reason I like Hiram, Ga so much is because Hiram is a small community so you feel comfortable and safe living in this area but then Hiram has everything you need. Hiram has all the shopping and things that a bigger place or city area would have but with less of the stress of going to a bigger city! All of the residents or people I have come across around the Hiram area have been very cordial and seem to have all the right manners.

I remember when Williams Lk Rd. was a dirt road. My Grandparents, Coleman and Doris Dobbins Davis, lived in the house beside Dobbins Middle School; this is where I learned how to drive a stick shift. I remember one year it rained so bad that the rd flooded, and all of us kids (the whole family lived on the same rd) made a day of swimming on that flooded road. I remember riding our bikes across hwy ninety-two (there was no traffic) to visit with Papaw and Mamaw (Eunice) Dobbins. I have very fond memories of this town.
However, now this "town" has become a bustling city west of Atlanta. There are people everywhere you turn; too many people, I think. Fast food restaurants, shopping centers, people, and cars now make up what I remember as only one rd. For this reason, I give my hometown three stars.
I personally believe that Hiram is a fantastic place to live. There are many stores and restaurants near by for your convenience. There are a lot of community wide activities that take place such as firework shows, a Christmas tree lighting, trick or treating within the stores, and so much more. I would say that Hiram is a very family oriented city and the schools around the area are phenomenal. Moving to the Hiram area is definitely a good decision if you want to be involved with your community and make memories that will last a lifetime.
