On this visual journey documenting the history of Rabun County, vintage souvenir postcards span decades, showing adventurous visitors who descended into the gorge, hiked to waterfalls, and climbed mountains, as well as how hardworking early settlers built their communities. Follow the development of the county from the construction of Tallulah Falls Railroad to the building of hotels, boardinghouses, and summer camps. Communities grew, declined, and grew again as dams were constructed to harness the Tallulah River, which reshaped the land and created Lake Burton, Lake Rabun, Lake Seed, and Tallulah Lake.
