Why Dallas Should Be Your Next Home
Dallas is part of the Paulding County School district, whose teachers on average have 13 years of experience. The county spends over $8,000 per student per year, making an impact on the students’ overall achievement. Students excel academically in addition to interscholastic activities. Dallas schools offer a wide range of extracurricular sports to keep your child mentally and physically fit.
Dallas, as well as Paulding County, is best remembered for its role in the American Civil War. During the war, three battles took place in Paulding County, one of which was in Dallas, the other two at New Hope Church, and Pickett’s Mill. The battles delayed Sherman’s Atlanta attack, and today, Pickett’s Mill Battlefield is one of the most well-preserved battle sites in the nation. Visitors can walk the same paths soldiers in the 19th century took, see earthworks constructed by them, and even tour an authentic 1800’s furnished pioneer cabin. It is a great way to spend the afternoon with your children or grandchildren. The historic Dallas Theater is also a great place to go with your family. With a variety of shows, as well as an amazing history, this theater is sure to impress guests, and be a great time out with your family.
