Ellijay comes from an Itsate Creek word elasi, which means “Descendants of the Foothill People.” These people were the original inhabitants of the land, which was also briefly occupied by Cherokee people before European settlers arrived in the 1790s. Little is known about Ellijay's early history. However, it must have been a prosperous town because it became Gilmer County's government seat in 1858, just two years after the new county was formed from portions of Cherokee and Union Counties.

Modern-day Ellijay is home to a population of just over 1,600. That gives it a tight-knit community feel that many city dwellers have never experienced. Discover old-fashioned Southern hospitality with picturesque surrounds on your next getaway in Ellijay.

When should you visit Ellijay, GA?

The Georgia Apple Festival, held on the second and third weekends of October, is the highlight of Ellijay's social calendar.

The weather is also pleasant at this time of the year, hovering around the low to mid-70s.
