Fall in Love with Blue Ridge
Amazing shopping and dining in a quaint small town setting.

The town of Blue Ridge offers visitors uptown shopping and amazing dining in a charming small town setting. Blue Ridge has an artsy vibe, with a vibrant arts scene, local art galleries and great community theater. The town has three craft breweries and live music on weekends. Blue Ridge was founded in 1886 as a result of the arrival of the Marietta and North Georgia Railroad. In the early years, there were five hotels and several boarding houses in downtown Blue Ridge, and the town was promoted as the "Switzerland of the South."

Blue Ridge Landmarks

The Blue Ridge Depot
As the home of the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, the historic railroad depot remains the central focus in downtown Blue Ridge. Although the first depot burned, the present station was built in 1906. You can see the train depart the station at 11 a.m. most days in season. Visit our Caboose Information Center beside the Depot to find out more about things to do and see in the area.

Blue Ridge City Park
Downtown Blue Ridge City Park is the heart of downtown Blue Ridge. The park is a popular place for picnics, community gatherings and festivals.

The Art Center - Historic Fannin County Courthouse
The historic Fannin County Courthouse was built in 1937 after the previous courthouse burned in 1936. The courthouse is now the home of the Blue Ridge Mountains Arts Association's Arts Center after a complete renovation, much of which was done by volunteers. Be sure to walk through the galleries inside the Art Center, and see the exhibits in the restored court room. The Art Center has rotating exhibits, so there is always something new.

Baugh House
Baugh House, located at 411 West First Street, is owned by the Fannin County Heritage Foundation. It is open to the public on Friday from 10:00 to 3:00. The home was built by James Baugh in 1890. Baugh was a brick mason and the bricks were made out of clay from the back yard. For more information, call 706-258-2645.
