A large hill, an unfortunate wagon driver, and several bags of sugar are supposedly behind the name of Sugar Hill, Georgia. The wagon driver lost a wheel at the top of a hill, spilling the freight he was carrying from Buford to Cumming. The site became known as “the hill where the sugar spilled,” then just “sugar hill.” The city of Sugar Hill was officially incorporated in 1939.
