The North Georgia mountains are known for their natural scenic beauty, but few communities remain as pristine as Sautee Nacoochee. These two villages are nestled within an unspoiled, history-rich land and are home of art galleries, shops, restaurants, museums, historical sites, wineries and recreational activities.
The famous Nacoochee Mound and Gazebo is a picturesque pastureland with grazing cattle. The mound is a sacred Cherokee burial site that dates back to the original natives who lived there. The names of these two villages come from a tragic legend involving two star-crossed lovers from opposing tribes.
In addition to the burial site, The Old Nora Grist Mill is a historical attraction; it was established in 1876 and still operates today, producing corn, grits, pancake mixes and more. Among other popular locations are the Crescent Hill Baptist Church (built in 1871), The Old Sautee Store (1872), the Stovall Mill Covered Bridge (1985) and the Folk Pottery & History Museum. Overall, Sautee-Nacoochee holds an abundance of beauty waiting to be explored!
