The City of Hiram was established in 1891 when its main source of revenue was cotton. It is currently a thriving city of business and industry. This city located in Paulding County, one of the fastest growing counties in the nation, is very familiar with growth. The three square miles that make up the city of Hiram are three miles of dual characteristics. There is the traditional, quaint, sleepy town that many residents still endeavor to maintain; and there is the growing, bustling commercial area that acts as a magnet for many Paulding County residents.
