|Social Circle is a city in Walton County, extending into Newton County, in the U.S. state of Georgia, approximately 45 miles east of Atlanta, and approximately four miles due north of access from Interstate 20. The origin of the city's name is unknown, but may be in relation to the city being halfway between Atlanta and Athens, at the junction of two major Indian roads. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 11.3 square miles (29km2), of which 11.2 square miles (29km2) are land and 0.04-square-mile (0.10km2) (0.27%) is water. It was founded in 1820. The Great Walton Railroad, and the CSX line, extends through the city's downtown. As a result the city is bi-sected by a railway through cut, causing the southside of the downtown area to be accessed from roadway by bridge. The city's railyard contains one of the relatively few remaining concrete coaling station towers in the southeastern United States. The Social Circle depot is in use by the CSX Transportation Corporation.|
