Social Circle is a historic community in Walton County located some 40 miles east of Atlanta in the Historic Heartland section of Georgia. Established in 1818, Walton County is named for George Walton, one of the original signers of America's Declaration of Independence.

Historic Social Circle is home to the renowned Blue Willow Inn Restaurant, considered the finest example of Southern traditional cooking in the South.

Social Circle boasts an entire historic district between Georgia 11 and Georgia 229, which was added to the Federal Register in 1980. Not on the register but worth noting in Social Circle is the Nebhut-Akridge-Gunter House (ca. 1840-55), also known as Gunter Hall, which serves as the headquarters of the Historic Preservation Society of Social Circle.
