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.
