Brasstown Bald: The History of the highest peak in Georgia

This mountain is otherwise known as Enotah to those who settled it, the native Cherokee people. It is part of the Blue Ridge Mountains and is mainly composed of dunite and soapstone. The peak of Brasstown Bald is divided by the county line of Towns and Union county. It is in a more rural area, which is the polar opposite of the area that Georgia’s tallest building is in. Even so, from Brasstown Bald it is possible to see the taller buildings of Atlanta — such as the Bank of America Plaza.
