Meaning of the Name

The town is called Between because it is between two of Georgia's largest cities — Atlanta and Athens are exactly the same distance to Between. It is also between Walton County's two largest cities, Loganville and Monroe [3].

Matthew Thomas "Bud" Dalton taught music lessons and sang both for his church and throughout Walton, Gwinnett and Barrow Counties in Georgia. He was a star route carrier; he carried mail from Campton, Monroe, Between, Snellville, and he slept in Loganville, Georgia between 1870 to 1910. Edgar Dalton, born 7 May 1905, on Hwy 11 of Monroe, Georgia, said that when the first store was built in Between, Georgia, the owner did not know what to call the store. Matthew Dalton knew the people that owned the store as he had been carrying mail on horseback at that time. Matthew Thomas Dalton told the owners that they should call the store Between, Georgia. (The Postmaster of Monroe got the credit for name Between, Georgia.)
