Elberton is the county seat for Elbert County in northeast Georgia. It's the largest city in Elbert County, with a population of approximately 5,000. Founded in 1803, the town of Elberton is known as the "Granite Capital of the World." Elberton is 33 miles east of the city of Athens and 110 miles east of Atlanta. The city produces more granite monuments than any other city in the world, and has attractions including historic homes, beautiful lakes, a historic theatre and the 20,000-seat Granite Bowl. Elberton has a charming downtown atmosphere with a traditional town square. Nearby Russell State Park is a serene 26,500-acre lake that offers some of the state's best fishing and boating. The park also has a new 6,800-yard golf course that is situated on a peninsula with stunning views of Lake Richard B. Russell. All facilities at the state park are designed for wheelchair accessibility, including the swimming beach. Several Indian sites were excavated near Russell State Park in 1980 before the lake was filled, indicating that Paleo-Indians lived in the area more than 10,000 years ago. This area is now called Ruckers Bottom and lies deep within the waters of Lake Richard B. Russell. Other nearby attractions include Bobby Brown State Park, the Nancy Hart Log Cabin and the grave of "Old Dan Tucker," a well-known early settler and figure in American folk lore.
