The community is called the "Queen City of the Highlands," nestled in the mountains of northwest Georgia, about two hours from Atlanta and only 30 miles from Chattanooga. It's a city rich in history, beginning with the Cherokee Indians who first occupied the land before being forced to leave on the Tail of Tears. A monument marks the site of Fort Cumming in LaFayette, which was one of the camps of the Cherokees.
