Ruby Forest

Ruby Forest is a family oriented, fun loving, swim and tennis community located in award-winning Suwanee, Georgia.

Ruby Forest got its name from the original property developer, who named it after his mother (“Ruby”) and his father (“Forest”).  Our community is built on land that was originally owned by the Roberts family, a very prominent family in the early history of Gwinnett County.  Historical records, dating back to 1822, indicate that James and Sarah "Sallie" Roberts were among the First Families in Gwinnett County. 

Family lore shares that James and Sallie were married in 1818 in Virginia. James and his new bride moved to North Carolina to start a family.  A few years later, James, Sallie, and their two small children left North Carolina in a two-wheel cart saying they would settle where the grass hits the horse’s belly. That apparently happened just north of Suwanee where the family put down roots. The old Roberts’ home place, where James and Sallie raised their children, was located one-quarter mile east of Highway 23 on Roberts Road.

Development of the modern neighborhood began in the early 1990's with the first homes erected in 1994.  Nearly a decade later, the neighborhood development was completed with a total of 443 single family homes.
