Mount Airy was established in 1874 when a station on the Richmond and Danville Railroad was built at the highest elevation between New Orleans and New York. Founded and developed by Colonel M.C. Wilcox, a railroad promoter who moved here from Knoxville, Tenn., the site overlooked the whole range of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Northeast Georgia. Located in Habersham County, the community was named for its elevation of 1,545 feet.
Mt. Airy is a town with a fascinating history, wonderful churches and historic places. The residents of Mt. Airy have a great deal of pride in their town, which is a thriving community with beautiful residential areas and a hometown atmosphere.
