White County welcomes you and your family or business to our special
corner of Northeast Georgia. We are 75 miles from Atlanta, Georgia; 96
miles from Greenville, South Carolina; 166 miles from Knoxville,
Tennessee and always just around the bend from Paradise (Valley).
The mountain grandeur of Northeast Georgia has a long-standing
history of sharing its riches and resources with the people attracted
to this special area. From the bounty enjoyed by the Cherokee Indians
and the gold nuggets treasured by Hernando DeSoto to the lumber
processed by successful sawmills and the beauty appreciated by tourists,
White County has a tradition of offering the unexpected from deep
within her heart.
