Habersham County in Northeast Georgia ---- what a wonderful place to live!
From our largest town, Cornelia, with Tower Mountain and its dramatic "down the mountain" views (see below) to our county seat of Clarkesville with its quaint town square and community park on the Soque Rive, Habersham County has much to offer.
Recreational opportunities abound --- fish and swim at Lake Russell, hike the Chattahoochee National Forest, fly fish the Soque River, raft the Chattahoochee, camp at Moccasin Creek, boat at Lake Burton, kayak Tallulah Gorge. And don't miss Cornelia's Big Red Apple Festival, Clarkesville's Mountain Laurel Festival or Demorest's Fourth of July Parade --- just a few of the many fun-filled,
family-oriented celebrations taking place year round.
Habersham is filled with appealing towns ----- Tallulah Falls, Clarkesville,
Demorest, Cornelia, Mt. Airy, Baldwin & Alto ---- each with its own interesting history and contribution to the charm of Habersham County.
And beautiful scenery meets you at every turn ---from Batesville through the Nacoochee Valley to the Fairview community --- from Turnerville and Hollywood in the north, to the ridge roads of South Habersham ---- the rivers, the lakes, the mountain views, the rocky & cascading streams and waterfalls. Sidney Lanier's "Hills of Habersham" are truly the foothills of the Southern Appalachian Mountains and serve as the front door to their many inviting opportunities.
Yes, convenience is one of the best things about living in Habersham. The same four lane roads that lead to the Great Smokey Mountains and Asheville, NC also lead to Atlanta, Athens and the University of Georgia.
In Habersham, you can enjoy the best of small-town living and the country life while remaining in close proximity to all the big city has to offer.
