The Legend Behind This Georgia Mountain Will Keep You Up At Night
There is something to be said about old school legends that just pepper the history pages of our great state of Georgia. Despite learning all about The Peach State in history books and elementary school classes, it’s possible to still come across legends that you have yet to learn about. We recently talked about This Urban Legend In Georgia Will Have You Shaking In Your Boots, which is pretty terrifying, to say the least. But there is one particular legend surrounding a famed Georgia mountain that will keep you up at night — not due to fear, but because it may just be one of the saddest stories to come out of our state.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
