Dillard, GA is one of the northern most towns in Georgia and is on the edge of the Smoky Mountains. This is small-town-USA at its finest. With a thriving tourism industry, Dillard brings in thousands each year to eat, shopping and browse through the art galleries.
John Dillard and his son James purchased the land around Rabun County and helped to form the town of Dillard. The establishment of the Dillard House helped to bring visitors to the area. In recent years the antique industry and art galleries began to pop up around town and now this gorgeous area has an arts and crafts community and a bustling downtown for those people looking to do some antique shopping. Add to all of this the beauty of the Smoky Mountains and the local hiking trails and this is agreat place to start your trip into the mountains.
