North Georgia Real Estate Ellijay
Gilmer County nestles in the foothills of the vast Chattahoochee National Forest of the lower Appalachian Mountains. The city of Ellijay is the county seat of Gilmer County, Georgia with a population of 1,600. Gilmer County covers some 439 square miles of some of the most beautiful mountain and farm land in North Georgia.

The name Ellijay means “New Ground Place”. Meaning the area has been newly prepared for planting. In downtown Ellijay the Ellijay and Cartecay Rivers join together within the city limits to form the Coosawattee River. Ellijay was Incorporated in 1834 and is known as "Georgia's Apple Capital.” The Georgia Apple Festival is an annual event each October for two weekends and people from all over the Southeast come to Ellijay to join in the fun.

It is also a great time to visit the pumpkin fields to pick your own pumpkin. There are several corn mazes that offer a great way to spend the afternoon with the kids.
