Only 20 miles west of Atlanta, Douglasville and the surrounding communities have the best of both worlds for your business. Close to the I-20 Corridor and other major highways, our businesses are at an advantage because of the easy access to these roadways.
The Douglas County Chamber is a voluntary membership organization of businesses and professional men and women who have joined together for the purpose of promoting the civic, commercial and industrial progress of our community.
