    Downtown Griffin, Ga.

Griffin, a city with more than 23,000 residents, is located south of Atlanta and retains the feel of an old Southern town. Historic buildings line the downtown streets, with older warehouses and industrial buildings on the outskirts of this city that once provisioned nearby cotton growers. Griffin hosts several popular annual events and many other activities to showcase the completed phases of its Main Street City’s Streetscape program. The Griffin Area Arts Alliance is an umbrella organization of the arts and was a catalyst in restoring the 1,100-seat Griffin Auditorium. The first season of the Sundance Channel's acclaimed series "Rectify" was shot entirely in Griffin as the fictional town of Paulie, Georgia.
