Jasper Georgia Marble Capital of the South

I live in Jasper Georgia. It is known as the first mountain city and the marble capital of Georgia. Jasper is at the Southern end of the Appalachian mountains. This gives us relatively mild winters along with great summers. We car close to Atlanta but still full of wilderness and really a life style which reminds one of a slower gentler time.

Jasper is also an area where marble is still mined and used through out the world today.

Jasper Georgia Marble festival

This Picture was taken at last years Marble Festival parade. For those of you who have seen Doc Hollywood with Michael J Foxx you get it

Tate house Jasper Georgia

The Tate hose is made mostly from Pink Marble. The hope was that when this vein was struck it would be a high end look. You can still see homes today that have marble fireplaces and some of them are pink. By the way the owners would consider selling this great place so if you are interested.....

Bottom line Jasper Georgia is a great place to visit . Very convenient to Atlanta and a marvelous mountain and marble marvel !!!!
