Stone Mountain City
Stone Mountain City Hall is located at 875 Main Street, Stone Mountain, GA 30083; phone: 770-498-8984.
The City is named for Stone Mountain, the largest exposed granite dome in North America. A post office was established in 1834; Old Augusta Road saw the building of a hotel in 1836 at about the same time as Aaron Cloud built an observation tower on the mountain summit. A general store began operation about 1939; a village named New Gibralter was established. The name of the town was changed to Stone Mountain in 1847.
