Culture and Heritage is one of the mainstays of the essence of Rabun County.  Attractions like the Foxfire Museum & Heritage Center, as well as the Barker’s Creek Grist Mill managed by the Hambidge Center, are just a very small sampling of history the county was built. There are so many more historical sites to explore while in our part of the Northeast Georgia Mountains.  Take time to browse around and discover cemeteries, museums, churches, and historic businesses that have stood the test of time.

Finally, take time to look over the history of the movie scene in Rabun County. The history goes back all the way to the mid-1950s when Mr. Walt Disney brought his movie crew to our gorgeous mountains to film The Great Locomotive Chase. Then, as they say, the rest is history.

Rabun County is indeed the Natural Choice for so many things and culture and history is one of the great ones.
