Buford was named after the president of the Atlanta and Richmond Air-Line Railway, Algernon Sidney Buford in 1865. It was widely known for its leather production in the late 1800s and was nicknamed “The Leather City.” A tannery was built downtown and leather goods were produced for use in saddles, horse collars, bridles, and shoes.
