Towns County

One of the smallest counties in Georgia proves once again that good things do come in small packages. Tucked away in the northeast corner of Georgia and bordering the western edges of North Carolina, Towns County is a land rich in natural beauty and the heritage of Appalachia. Here misty coves, lush forests, cool lakes and rushing streams whisper quiet invitations echoed in the friendly voices of the mountain community. Of the 106,240 acres of land in Towns County, the Chattahoochee National Forest covers over 57,000 and another 7,000 is owned by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) which built Lake Chatuge in 1941. The natural beauty of the county is enhanced and preserved by both these attractions, which afford the recreational opportunities and economic benefit.

Today Towns County has a new growth. Not only have the annual events and beauty of the mountains attracted visitors for many years, but the quality of life has attracted many who have added greatly to the human resources in our county. Beauty seems to be the common denominator with both visitors and new residents. Towns County community members have dedicated themselves and their energies toward quality growth and development, seeking to preserve our priceless natural resources and, to help direct growth so that our county retains its special beauty that has attracted so many.
