Students and teachers shared memories from the seven years the school operated, from 1962 to 1969. In 1969, a decision from Washington made it dow the pipeline, requiring Gainesville High to be integrated and to the eventual shuttering of Butler.

Dogs and cats are the most popular pets and while plenty come from breeders or pure chance, many pet owners-to-be adopt their furry friends from humane societies, like the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia.
Since 1919, members of the Paul E. Bolding Post of the American Legion have shared in fraternal bonds on the shoreline of Lake Lanier but come Saturday, Legion members are eager for the Gainesville and Hall County community celebrate their 100th anniversary at the post.
