Real Estate in Oak Crest – Hinesville, GA
Hinesville was founded in 1837, and incorporated into a city in 1916. The city is named after Senator Charlton Hines who established the Liberty County seat in the area. Three signatories of the Declaration of Independence, George Walton, Lyman Hall and Button Gwinnett, called Hinesville home.
In 1940, a huge area near Hinesville was designated an anti-aircraft training center for the United States military, and called Camp Stewart. The influx of soldiers and support personnel resulted in a major increase in the size and population of Hinesville. Although Camp Stewart was deactivated after WWII, the base was designated a fort in 1956, and became the home in 1974 to the Twenty-fourth Infantry Division and the Seventy-fifth Infantry Regiment.
Since that time, fortunes of Hinesville have been tied to those of Fort Stewart. In fact, convenient access to the Fort Stewart Military Installation makes neighborhoods in Hinesville the ideal location for military families coming into the Coastal Georgia area.
