The Cherokee called it the “Enchanted Lands.” Though Dalton was the site of much turmoil in the early 18th century, it has always been a place of beauty and history. The Creek Nation and Cherokee fought for possession of the land, until Cherokee victory in the mid 1700s. However, the Cherokee would also lose this paradise during their forced removal by the American government in 1838, a tragedy known today as the Trail of Tears.
After the establishment of a working railroad city, host to the Western and Atlantic Railway that connected Tennessee to the Chattahoochee River, Dalton’s turmoil would continue when the South seceded from the Union – leading to the American Civil War. During the years of war, Dalton and the surrounding areas witnessed some of the bloodiest combat, as well as the Great Locomotive Chase of 1862.
Today, Dalton is very different. With a thriving carpet industry, a growing arts community, and an ideal location in the Georgia Mountains – the city has become a historic treasure trove – waiting to be explored.
