Located in both Habersham and Rabun county, Tallulah Falls was incorporated in 1885 named after the waters of the Tallulah River. The city is 1,719 feet above sea level and you may recognize the area if you watched the 1972 film Deliverance. The town became popular in the late 1800s when the Tallulah Falls Railroad made the town a tourist hot spot.
The Niagra Falls of the south and one of the Seven Wonders of Georgia, the 1,000-foot chasm of Tallulah Gorge, located in Tallulah Gorge State Park, was created over millions of years by the river. This popular location features beautiful waterfalls and numerous hiking trails.
Founded in 1909, the Tallulah Falls School is an independent, co-educational, international boarding school also located here. Enjoy a stop at the Tallulah 1882 Tea House, housed in the original train depot that was a popular stop for tourists in the late 1800s.
The town is 1.5 hours from Atlanta, 2 hours from Asheville and 10-minutes from Lake Rabun. If you’re looking for vacation homes, permanent homes or property for sale in Tallulah, look below for what’s available or contact Sarah for upcoming listings.
