Taccoa, GA is a small town in the upper northeast corner of Georgia just about at the South Carolina border. In addition to the historic downtown, it’s known for its large regional Chrisitian college (on which is located a prominent waterfall) as well as several important nearby historic locations.
Not too far from the downtown is the Georgia State Historic Site known as Traveler’s Rest. It’s the only remaining original ‘stagecoach inn’ that was used along the Old King’s Highway from 1815 up to the 1830s.
The Stephens County Recreation area boasts some nice views over Lake Hartwell back towards the GA mountains as well as to South Carolina just across.
Taccoa is also site of two waterfalls. One is one the tallest freefalling falls in GA: Taccoa Falls, located on the campus of the local university…
…the other is the much less impressive small drop of Henderson Falls in the middle of the large city park of the same name.
