Andrew Pickens, a Revolutionary War soldier.
A railroad line built in 1883 from
Atlanta, through the valleys and
mountain passes of Pickens
County to Tate and Nelson, made
possible the development of large marble quarries. One of
the largest marble veins in the world is in Pickens County,
running at least four miles long. It is a half-mile deep and
almost that wide in places. Over 60 percent of the
monuments in Washington, D.C. are made from Pickens
The Old Federal Road, the earliest vehicular route through northwest Georgia, crossed
