Known as the “Gateway to the Mountains,” Cleveland, Georgia resides within White County and is located around 75 miles Northeast of Atlanta. Founded in 1857, Cleveland was originally called Mount Yonah and was the center of the gold-mining territory. It served as a crossroads, connecting the rough roads and mountain trails leading East to the surrounding towns.
Today, people visit local attractions such as the North Georgia Zoo and Petting farm, several gorgeously located wineries and Babyland General Hospital, home of the Cabbage Patch Kids dolls. Other sites to see include nearby Unicoi State Park, Yonah Mountain and the Chattahoochee National Forest, which includes Anna Ruby State Falls.
