USDA Boundary Details

Chattooga County, located in the northwestern part of Georgia, was established on December 28, 1838. It was carved out of portions of Floyd and Walker Counties and named after the Chattooga River, which flows through the area. Summerville serves as the county seat.

In its early days, the region was inhabited by Native American tribes such as the Cherokee, before European settlers began arriving in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The forced removal of the Cherokee people in the 1830s, known as the Trail of Tears, played a significant role in the history of the area.

The county thrived with the growth of textile mills and railroad construction in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, bringing in economic prosperity. Agriculture, specifically the cultivation of cotton, corn, and wheat, also played a vital role in shaping the county's development.

Chattooga County is home to several historic sites, including the Couey House and the National Register-listed Johns Homestead, both showcasing early 19th-century architecture.

One fun fact about Chattooga County is that it was the primary filming location for the 1979 movie "Norma Rae", which starred Sally Field as a textile worker advocating for better working conditions in a North Carolina mill town. The movie was inspired by the true story of Crystal Lee Sutton, a worker's rights activist in North Carolina.
