Welcome to Triona city rich in history, located in northwest Georgia.  Trion is located in Chattooga County and is named after a factory in the town. Three Walker County businessmen, Andrew P. Allgood, Spencer S. Marsh and Col. W.K. Briers, officially organized the Trion factory on October 12, 1845. It has had few shut-downs since its first production in 1847. Three families owned and operated the mill through its first 150 years. The Allgood Family (1845-1912), the B.D. Riegel Family (1912-1987) and the R.B. Pamplin Family purchased the mill in 1987.

Saturday, April 29:  The Trion Tree Board planted another beautiful tree to stand as testimony to their dedication not only to their mission, but also to that of the Trion Veteran Committee.  Members of both committees: Mayor Larry Stansell, Mayor Pro Tem Mickey McGraw, Councilman Don Harris and Jason Taylor (Woodman Life) were instrumental in the development of this sixth tree planting orchestrated since the inception of Trion becoming a Tree City USA.  Veteran’s Committee Chairman Don Harris stated, “This tree is being planted in honor of the Vietnam Veterans. We are also planting a tree for WWI, WWII, Korea and the Middle East Conflicts.”  Tree Board Chairman Garry Kennedy said, “We selected the Red Sunset Maple for its vibrant red fall colors.  The new growth leaves and twigs are tinted red before the star-shaped, glossy leaves mature. A very appropriate tree, given the symbolic nature of this and the others that are planned for this location.”  Tree Board member and Trion Town Maintenance Superintendent Eddy Willingham operated the backhoe to prepare the soil in the desired location near the Veterans Memorial, walking track, and playground for the tree that will become a haven of shade over future swings the town will place for those who wish to rest and enjoy the ambiance of this area.   Trion Tree City USA Board consists of eleven members including the Trion High School Green Team sponsored by Carla Harward.  Also present for the planting ceremony, Council Lady Becky McWhorter.
