According to The Cinemaholic, The Girl From Plainville was filmed in various locations across the state of Georgia.

The Cinemaholic shares that the series was mainly shot in the Savannah metropolitan area. In particular, the baseball scenes were reportedly shot at Taylor Park in the county of Bloomingdale.

Lastly, production utilized the city of Mableton, Ga. for filming. The city is known for the Silver Comet Trail and Heritage Park. According to The Cinemaholic, Mableton also has beautiful terrain that includes rolling hills and narrow roads. Plus, the city is home to various parks and community gardens that’ll likely be seen throughout the series.
