Lithonia GA Auto, Home & Business Insurance
The community got its unusual name, according to locals, when, in the 1840s, a Classics teacher combined the Greek words "Litho" meaning "rock" and "Onia" meaning "place." Considering that the East Dekalb area contains an abundance of Gneiss granite, the teacher aptly chose the name Lithonia. The nearby granite dome, Stone Mountain, is composed largely of a rock called Lithonia gneiss.
Downtown Lithonia was recently nominated to the National Register of Historic Places and is home to a variety of businesses. The city is a pedestrian-friendly area with interesting architecture and lots of history. In the spring, the Lithonia Stewart Amphitheater will be returning to host concerts and other cultural events. Stonecrest is a lively business area featuring shopping, dining and lodging, centered around the Mall at Stonecrest.
The Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area encompasses over 40,000 acres and offers visitors natural wonders, compelling history and includes Davidson-Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve and Panola Mountain State Park. The rare, native plant species, such as the signature red diamorpha in the winter and fall's yellow daisies, make it seem as though the rock is in constant metamorphosis.
