Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Fannin County is located 90 miles north of Atlanta via I-575 and Highway 515, only 1 ½ hours from midtown Atlanta and 2 hours from Hartsfield-Jackson Airport. The county is on the Tennessee-North Carolina line, 1 ½ hours from Chattanooga and 2 ½ hours from Asheville. The county has three incorporated areas: The City of Blue Ridge – the County Seat, The City of Morganton and the City of McCaysville, which shares a downtown with Copperhill, Tenn.

With 40% of its land area in the Chattahoochee National Forest (106,000 acres), Georgia Trend Magazine’s April 2010 issue describes the Blue Ridge area as “a refuge of sorts for an assortant of expatriates fleeing the congested cities and big corporations of America. The wide natural expanses of Fannin have proven highly attractive to folks who are absolutely sick of the traffic, crime and taxes of the big city.” Traditionally supported by the textile industry, today the area’s economy is based on entrepreneurial retail and service industries of which many are related to tourism, second homes and retirement.

The Fannin County Development Authority is dedicated to working with businesses large and small considering locating and growing in the area. Please let us know how we can assist you.
