Cornelia is a city in Habersham County in northeast Georgia. As of 2010, the population was 3,834. It's home to one of the world's largest apple sculptures, located at the old train depot in downtown Cornelia. The Big Red Apple, built in 1925 of steel and concrete, pays homage to the apple growers in the county. The huge apple sits atop an obelisk shaped monument and weighs 5,200 pounds and is 7 feet high. Cornelia is also known as being the retirement home of baseball legend, Ty Cobb, who was born nearby. It was also the base operation for production of the 1956 movie, The Great Locomotive Chase, which was filmed along the Tallulah Falls Railway. Recent renovations to the downtown and the old depot have drawn new interest to the small town. The Big Red Apple is the focal point of an annual festival held the first week of October, and a 5k road race is held at the end of October. Outdoor wonders include Tallulah Gorge, which is formed by the Tallulah River as it cuts through a dome rock formation. The gorge is about two miles long and features cliffs up to 1,000 feet high. A series of waterfalls drop a total of 500 feet in one mile along the gorge. Tallulah Gorge State Park protects the area, which is considered one of the "Seven Natural Wonders of Georgia."
