Memorial Pavers Project

You have a chance to make your friends and family a permanent part of Ellijay. Their names and descriptions can be inscribed on pavers in the new North Dalton Street phase of our Streetscape.

Along with new sidewalks, memorial pavers like those around the square and down River Street are now being sold for only $75 each. It’s a small price to honor your parents or ancestors, recognize your community organization, memorialize a favorite teacher or pastor. You can also leave behind a reminder of your children or your business. Each paver will have room for up to six lines with a maximum of 17 characters per line. You’ll need to act quickly. Only 144 pavers will be sold. Use the form below. Call 706.635.4711 ext. 5 or email for more information.
