Free Home is an unincorporated community in the eastern part of Cherokee County, Georgia, United States. Centered at the intersection of state highways 20 and 372, the rural community has seen moderate suburbanization of the area since the late 1990s. It is home to Free Home Elementary School. The community is home to a Publix Supermarket center, which has a few stores/restaurants. There is also a Tractor Supply Co. that was recently completed in September 2011. Free Home is about halfway between Ball Ground to the north and Milton to the south-southeast on Georgia 372 (also called Free Home Highway and Birmingham Highway, for the community now within Milton). On Cumming Highway (Georgia 20), it is also about halfway between Canton (west) and Cumming (east), the Cherokee and Forsyth county seats. The Little River begins as a small stream just southeast of Free Home, near Free Home Road.
