    April 4, 2014, Tony and I was driving the back roads of Georgia on our way to Helen, GA to visit the Bavarian Village. We passed Fort Mountain State Park, which we love by the way. We visited there a few weeks back, but this time ON TO HELEN....on down the road towards Elijay, Ga I noticed a sign "COHUTTA OVERLOOK"...I said...BRAKE..side trip..My...

  • Murray County Courthouse

    The Doric-styled courthouse was erected in 1916 and is one of only three domed courthouses in the State of Georgia. The Courthouse has been home for various county officials and still maintains offices in the building. In a controversy during the planning, Murray County Commissioners went to jail for contempt rather than see any interruptions of...

  • Fort Mountain State Historic Park

There are several areas to pull over for some spectacular views of the mountains and overlooks are...

  • Log Cabin on Chief Vann's Springplace...

    This reconstruction depicts one of the log cabins as it would have appeared on the Chief Joseph Vann's Springplace Plantation. A plantation was more like a small town than just a single house. in all there were 96 structures on the Vann estate. In addition to his fine home there were many cabins, some to house his 110 African slaves and others for...

  • Visitor Center: Chief Vann House St....

    This exhibit in the Chief Vann House Visitor Center Museum looks more like a chapter out of Gone with the Wind than Dances with Wolves. Studying the Cherokee can dispel many stereotypes of Native Americans. The Cherokee's first known encounter with Europeans was Hernando DeSoto's expedition in 1540. Within the next three centuries Europeans came...

  • Chief Vann House State Historic Site

    When I first saw this classic mansion it was a huge disappointment to me. That's because I was about 8 years old, and I was told we were going to see the home of an Indian Chief. I expected a teepee - not a two-story brick house. I was at the Vann House most recently on the first week-end in March, and now at age 60, I find the place utterly...

Chatsworth Restaurants

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    High atop Fort Mountain, and surrounded by the solitude of the Chattahoochee National Forest and the Cohutta Wilderness, is an unexpected jewel, the Cohutta Lodge and Restaurant. This could also be an accomodations tip, but I have not stayed here. However, on a few occasions I have been privileged to enjoy dinner at Cohutta Restaurant while also soaking in the splendid 180 degree panorama of the Blue Ridge mountains and valleys below. Any time of year the views are spectacular, but during the autumn foilage season they will take your breath away.

    Favorite Dish: I came here the first time for the view, but returned for the food. The restaurant is open every day, and a buffet is offered on the week-ends, with a wide selection of meats, vegetables, salads and deserts. You definitely can't go wrong with the fried chicken, and the prime rib is sumptous. Their southern fried okra is done the way my Mama cooked it - absolutely delicious. Of course you'll want to wash it down with sweet iced tea. Have the banana pudding for desert and your mouth will thank you.

American Indians were not known to build such forts and its origin remains a mystery.One of the most interesting theories finds support from a letter in the files of the...
