Toccoa is a special place. The land is absolutely beautiful. It also is a very historic area where Native Americans once lived, hunted, and traded. The community plays outdoors—boating on Lake Hartwell, hiking along trails in the national forest, and kayaking and fishing along the many rivers and clear-to-the-bottom trout streams. But what really makes this part of northeast Georgia so attractive is the people. I have never met more kind-hearted folks than the those who live, work, and play in Stephens County. It is a place where strangers wave without knowing you and where neighbors always have open doors and hearts. When you visit Stephens County, you are visiting a place called home!
