Union County

Located in northeast Georgia at the southern tip of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Union County shares its Northern Border with North Carolina. Known for its natural beauty, Union County is the perfect place for the outdoorsmen looking to fish, hike, climb, horseback or camp. With a population of just over 17,000, the quaint antebellum town of Blairsville is the county’s only established community.

History

In 1832 the state legislature created Union County from Cherokee County, not in support of the North in the Civil War (as is sometimes thought) but by the desire to mine gold. However, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the county’s memorial to its Civil War veterans may be the only one in the South that specifically recognizes Union soldiers and American Indians who fought white settlement.
