Named after the Cherokee word for “meadow,” Hiawassee sits on the Georgia and North Carolina border in Towns County. Because of its poor farming conditions, Hiawassee didn’t thrive until after Lake Chatuge was created in 1941. The first annual Georgia Mountain Fair in 1950 marks a changing point in the town’s economy and remains one of the area’s biggest attractions today.

Having a tourism-based economy, Hiawassee is highlighted by the beautiful Lake Chatuge, which boasts gorgeous lake scenery enveloped by the breathtaking Appalachian Mountains. The town is a popular area for summer vacationers, fall tourists, migrating residents and retirees who enjoy boating, fishing, swimming and breathing the fresh mountain air. It even has its own sanded “beach” in the middle of town as well as high-end resorts nearby like The Ridges, The Retreat and Brasstown Valley Resort. When people visit Hiawassee, they can’t help but fall in love with the scenery.
