Add a Point to the Map

In 1887, the Marietta and North Georgia Railroad picked this spot for the area hub and the town of Blue Ridge was incorporated. It quickly became a boomtown as a result of the great  iron road. Investors and tourists flocked there for many of the same reasons you would visit now: inspirational mountain views and a healthy laid back lifestyle. The boom, like all booms ended but Blue Ridge persisted.

Today, The old section around the depot has become a haven for artist and antique shops. Many of the buildings, like the depot, are on the National Historic Register.
