Buford is a city in Gwinnett and Hall counties in the U.S. state of Georgia. The population was 12,387 at last official count.
In a bid to host the lunch stop on the new Atlanta and Richmond Air Line Railway, they renamed the town after its president, Algernon S. Buford. They won the lucrative stopping point. Buford was once known as the "New York City" of Gwinnett, until about the 1960s–70s when Lawrenceville became bigger than Buford. However, Buford has grown rapidly over the last few years, primarily because of the Mall of Georgia, a strong city school system, and houses built in the city.
The median income for a household in the city was $38,733, and the median income for a family was $43,100. Males had a median income of $29,458 versus $22,342 for females. The per capita income for the city was $18,308. About 7.5% of families and 11.2% of the population were below the poverty line, including 9.2% of those under age 18 and 17.2% of those age 65 or over.
