Blairsville, Georgia, is a very small town that takes up 1.1 square miles of the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Georgia. Blairsville is home to about 553 people and is located two hours north of Atlanta.
Blairsville was named for the Revolutionary war hero James Blair, who was sometimes referred to as “the Paul Revere of the South.” The area of the Blue Ridge Mountains where Blairsville is located are home to some of the highest elevations east of the Mississippi. Just 30 minutes outside of Blairsville is Brasstown Bald — the highest mountain peak in Georgia, with an elevation of 4,784 feet — while the town itself has an elevation of 1883 feet.
The Blairsville area is home to several lakes, including Nottely Lake, Lake Winfield Scott, and Lake Trahlyta, each of which is just a 15- to 30-minute drive from the town center. The area is also full of smaller rivers, creeks, and streams. Butternut Creek, for which Butternut Creek Golf Course is named, runs right through town, while Little Creek, Wellborn Creek, and Stephens Branch spread out farther beyond the city limits. Nottely River flows just to the west of town.
