Area History

Ellijay is the anglicized form of the Cherokee name Elatseyi, meaning "new ground".[4][5]

Gilmer County was cut from Cherokee County in 1832, and Ellijay became the county seat in 1834. Ellijay existed as a remote mountain community until the Marietta and Northern Georgia Railroad (later the L and N) arrived in 1884. This prompted something of a boom in the timber industry, but the area remained relatively isolated until the Zell Miller Mountain Parkway (Georgia 515; named for Georgia governor and U.S. senator Zell Miller) was completed in 1991. The city holds an annual Apple Festival in October, and Gilmer County is known as the 'Apple Capital of Georgia'. The Apple Festival is a nationally recognized festival that occurs on the 2nd and 3rd weekends of October. Tourists from as far as Hawaii and Alaska come to try Ellijay's world famous apples and other vendors' apple products. Ellijay lies where two rivers, the Ellijay and the Cartecay, come together to form the Coosawattee River.
