Gilmer County Government

Gilmer County was cut out of Cherokee County in 1832. The area was home to the Cherokee Indians until the exit during “The Trail of Tears”. At least half of the county is protected from being developed because those parts are located in the Chatahoochee National Forest. The two cities in the county jurisdiction are Ellijay and East Ellijay.

People come from all around each year in October for the Georgia Apple Festival. It is estimated that more than 600,00 bushels of apples are produced in Gilmer County each year.

The county covers more than 426 square miles and the population is over 23,000.
