Clarkesville a picturesque town located in the center of Habersham County in the northeast corner of Georgia. A quintessential small southern town, Clarkesville has a attractive downtown square with a Gazebo and many historical buildings and homes. A historic walking is available for Clarksville, and includes seeing different types of architecture such as Queen Anne, Greek Revival and Gothic Revival. The Old Clarksville Cemetery is the burial site of Jarvis Van Buren, and the Mauldin House includes a millinery shop and big Holly Cabin. Clarkesville is host to the Annual Mountain Laurel Festival, held at the end of May. Over 3,000 people attend this event, which is held on the Downtown Square and in Pitts Park. Vendors sell handmade crafts and food, there is local entertainment presented throughout the day, and an antique car show, children's activities and parade round out the day. The festival emphasizes traditional Appalachian lifestyle, including music, spinning and needle arts, wood-turning and more on the grounds of the Historic Mauldin House. A visit to Clarkesville is a trip back in time, when times moved at a slower pace and people greeted strangers with a smile and polite "hello." For a quiet change of pace, Clarkesville is the place to be.
