Rabun County was created in 1819 when the Stte of Georgia dictted a treaty with the Cherokee Nation which removed the Native Americans. The county was named for a recently deceased governor, William Rabun. The land,which had been home to the Cherokees for thousands of years prior to the arrival of Europeans, was given to white settlers in a lnad lottery.
