Hoschton is a city in Jackson County, Georgia, United States. The population was 2,908 at the 2000 census.


In 1865, three intrepid brothers, J.R., R.A., and William Hosch, built the first store in what is now Hoschton. In 1880, with the promise of a railroad at hand, R.A. and J.R. Hosch decided to establish a town. The brothers hired surveyors and held a sale of lots. They also bought and gave, for the use of Hoschton citizens, land on which to build the town square, a church, a school and a cemetery. Fittingly, the city name honors the Hosch brothers.
