Downtown Ellijay is surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains, where the Ellijay and Cartecay rivers meet to form the Coosawattee. In its beginnings it was a Cherokee village. Later it was Saturday-go-to-town marketplace where neighbors met to trade goods and news. It was the center of many mountain trades and crafts from woodworking to chenille tufting to quilting to whiskey distilling. It includes the Tabor House museum and Civil War library, the home of self-taught artist R.T. Henson, and several historical buildings. Ellijay just loves to have company, so visitors are always welcome, whether they come for apples, crafts, rivers, trails, or antiques.
