Walnut Grove is a town with picturesque surroundings, located less than an hour away from downtown Atlanta. Town residents believe Thomas Evans settled the community at the crossroads of Loganville, Social Circle, Covington and Conyers because of the inviting shade of a group of walnut trees. Locals also fondly remember Atlantan Dr. Grady E. Clay, whose attachment and care his childhood town remained steadfast.

The town is also the birthplace of the famous blues musician Robert Hicks, more commonly called Barbecue Bob, creator of "Barbecue Blues," which sold 15,000 copies when it came out.
