City of Byron
The City of Byron was incorporated in 1874 and covers 5.8 square miles. The population in July 2012 was estimated at 4,800. With two exits within the city limits off Interstate 75, Byron is poised for even greater growth in the next few years.
Located on Hwy. 49 and I-75 at exit 149 in Peach County, Byron offers small town charm, beautiful new subdivisions, a thriving industrial park, great schools and much more while still being just minutes from Macon, Warner Robins and Robins Air Force Base. It's a great place to come when you want to leave the hustle and bustle of the workplace.
A Better Hometown Community, Byron is home to Mid State RV, the largest Coachman dealership in the world, and New Castle RV. A large auto dealership Jeff Smith Chevrolet-Ford is located in Byron as well.
In Byron, you can browse through Big Peach Antiques with more than 200 dealers in one space; shop and save at more than two dozen stores at the Peach Shops at Byron; visit The Generation Gap, a Classic Car Emporium; or stop by the Byron Tailgate Market for fresh fruits and vegetables and arts & crafts.
In Historic Downtown Byron, Main Street, you'll find antebellum homes, a renovated 1870 Depot Museum and Caboose, the recently-renovated jail and Jailhouse Park. Cross the railroad tracks and visit the Byron Welcome Center/Better Hometown Office located in a 1920 drugstore. Enjoy lunch at one of our unique restaurants or browse the specialty shops.
Byron is also home of the Battle of Byron, an annual community fund-raising event staged in the historic district of the city since 1979. The brainchild of then city-clerk Frances McDaniel, the event has become one of Peach County's most successful gatherings.
