A "must see"

is the recent addition

of a mural depicting how Talking Rock may have looked around

the turn of the century.

Talking Rock

 

is nestled in the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains

between the towns of Ellijay and Jasper in Pickens County.

 

Happily, the third smallest town in the state of Georgia,

Talking Rock has not changed much since itís beginning in 1883,

when the train was the lifeline of the town.

Talking Rock's history is rich with stories about the Trail of Tears, the Civil War, the railroad and the Great Depression.

 

The origination of our town's name is unclear

and there are many interesting stories regarding its derivation.

Some individuals believe that it's from the noise

of the water rolling over the rocks in our beautiful creek,

while other like the story of folks sitting for a spell

on a rock to have a talk with a neighbor.

Still others believe that the name originated with the local Indians.

 

Whatever it's origination, it's an unforgettable name

and an unforgettable place!

Come by for a visit!
