Tucked into the foothills of the southern Blue Ridge Mountains, this historic 715+/- acre farm embodies the best qualities of north Georgia land. Purchased from the Cherokee Nation along with 14,000+/- additional acres in 1832, Old Horne Farm is a piece of the legacy of Farish Carter, an essential figure of Georgias pre-Civil War economy and the namesake for the city of Cartersville. Farish chose a spot just up the road from Old Horne as his familys summer residence, a testament to the allure of this area. Old Horne Farm consists of fertile farmland that gradually moves into rolling forested hills that overlook the scenic countryside below. One of the properties highlights is the adjacent 3,200+/- acre Carters Lake, the deepest of Georgias reservoir lakes and an incredibly rich recreational body of water. Old Horne Farm is just 20 miles from Ellijay, GA, one of North Georgias prized mountain towns, and 65 miles from Atlanta, providing many wonderful conveniences.
