The team at Dryden Enterprises and Dryden Properties is proud to serve the communities that call the Coastal Empire their home. Since 1983 it has been our mission to build homes our clients love. Founder Claude Dryden came to Hinesville, Georgia as a temporary move with an agricultural bank, but would soon call the town his home. The home construction company began building starter homes for young families with a large part of clientele being members of the military. His first development, Forest Lake Estates, is still a thriving neighborhood today. Many years later, the business has grown seeing dozens of neighborhood developments and has expanded to incorporate apartment communities.
