Help us plan for
Rabun County’s Bicentennial Celebration

Special Exhibit:
Rabun’s Twentieth Century in Review

The Tallulah Falls Railroad arrived in Tallulah Falls in 1882 and tourism boomed in the town next to the gorge and the beautiful series of waterfalls. Many tourist groups posed under the rock formation called Witch's Head. Photo circa 1900

At the turn of the twentieth century, Rabun County remained largely isolated from the outside world. This would change dramatically with the coming of a railroad which also brought tourism, logging and dam building.
