"Crop lines lead to majestic mountains" Blairsville has a rich history of gold,Cherokee Indians, and early settlers. Although the neighboring city of Dahlonega, GA was well known for the first site of gold in the United States, Blairsville and the surrounding area was known to have the purest gold in the mountains. In the late 18th century two families settled in the area: the Collins Family, and the Dyer Family. Many houses from the early 19th century still stand, or have been moved/or restored in another area of the county to help with preservation. Blairsville's town square is home to the original courthouse, several local businesses, the Seasons Inn Motel, and a local old diner called the "Hole In The Wall".
