Our Quintessential Urban Village

To Lithonians, our City is more than a City of Granite. Lithonia has a rare mix of small-town Southern charm, a rich and diverse historical background, a bustling local economy, and a wide range of leisure activities for the entire family. Our faith-based community includes several of the nation’s foremost places of worship, and our close proximity to Atlanta make us an idyllic location for many of our residence who commute to the City each day.
