A scenic place to live and to enjoy the outdoors was not the original reason Lake Burton was created. Back in 1913, its purpose was to help provide electricity for the citizens of Georgia. Since that time, it has grown into a place of recreation and quiet living. Covering 2,775 acres, it is the largest of all the lakes in Northern Georgia run by the Georgia Power Company. The lake was named in honor of Jeremiah Burton, who held many local civic positions, including bailiff of the superior court.
