It’s Spring in Downtown Ellijay


Ellijay’s North Georgia Quilt Trail Is Covering the Region

Ellijay’s North Georgia Quilt Trail is the brainchild of local merchant Sherryl Adams, who had seen the trails in North Carolina and brought the idea to downtown. She and Jim Harmon are spreading the idea throughout the county.
