Union County Historical Society Museum

3 Town Square
Blairsville, GA 30512


Union County Museum is located in the historic and restored Union County Courthouse. Highlights of the museum include The Romanesque Revival-style courthouse, built in 1899 (at the center of some debate) and placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. The building was designed by J.W. Golucke, a noted courthouse architect of the day, who was arrested (perhaps erroneously) for fraud in another project and eventually died in jail. The original clock and bell mechanism from the courthouse tower, weighs in at 2 tons.

Also see the internationally renowned Margarita Morgan Miniature Collection, intricate structures patterned after magnificent buildings, furnished with exquisite pieces by master craftsmen, and "Rapture," an excellent example of American primitive art, painted by the late Everett Hunt.
