Rabun County is a county located in the U.S. State of Georgia. As of the 2010 Census, the population was 16,276. As early as 1760, explorers came to the area now known as Rabun County. The Georgia General Assembly passed an act to create the county on December 21, 1819 becoming Georgia’s forty-seventh county.


In 1898, the Tallulah Falls Railway was constructed on a north/south track through the county. One of the most popular stops along the railway was Tallulah Gorge. The Railway was in operation for more than 60 years and was featured as a backdrop for the movie, Deliverance.


Approximately, 60% of the land is in National Forests and State Parks, approximately 20% is held by Georgia Power and the rest is in private hands.

Rabun County is the only county in Georgia with three state parks: Black Rock Mountain, Moccasin Creek, and Tallulah Gorge.
