History

It is unclear why the name “Social Circle” was applied to this place. According to tradition, Social Circle was named from an incident in which a group of people living in the settlement offered water to a weary traveler, whose response was “This certainly is a social circle”. The city also officially notes that a citizen of another village community which was already known by the name of Social Circle joined the settlement in its early days.

Social Circle was incorporated as a town in 1869, and as a city in 1904
