Enjoyed the local artifacs and hands on exhibits. The building itself is a treasure of times past. This is not wheelchair acsessable place and it does have steep stairs going to the second floor.

This House showcases artifacts, photographs, etc. on the history of the Blue Ridge region, along with a small book shop and local history/genealogy library. The staff are friendly and helpful. It is more of a 'cabinet of curiosities' than an exhibit of history, but that...More

I have been going to the Tabor House since it was started. It is a good addition to our community. I donated civil war artifices from my family because I know they would serve a purpose here. The people who are there to interpret everything...More

My trip to this museum was great! I really enjoyed how much knowledge our tour guide had. I learned about Gilmer County and it's Cherokee and Civil War History. We have a great history here!

The idea of a museum is to hopefully have old stuff. I love this museum. So, if you have a little time-I would recommend that you visit the Tabor House and Civil War Museum, in Ellijay, GA. It is near the square--look for the signs.

A wonderful little place to spend an hour or two learning about the history of Gilmer County and the Cherokee Indians. The people who volunteer their take pride in showing off their museum.
