City of Ellijay Georgia – Gilmer County GA

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.

The Stratford Inn

If you are looking for a motel in Gilmer County then book a room at The Stratford Inn. They have cable TV, internet, nice rooms, and a great pool. Located just off highway 515 in East Ellijay the Inn is close to “everything”. If you like being close to the food and stores and you want to be centrally located to most attractions then you can’t beat this location. Your car probably prefers pavement rather than those old gravel roads associated with mountain lodging so make the right choice.
