North Georgia is the Marble Capital for the U.S. Many of the public buildings around the country and even in Europe have Georgia Marble in them . One of the prominent families in the marble business, which is still active today is the Tate Family. In fact in the mountains the town of Tate is a pretty little village. You can even buy homes made by Sears in the 1920's. Sitting in the village is the Tate House.
Front of the Tate house features pretty columns and gardens. Of course the home is made of marble. In fact a vein of pink marble was discovered and mined . The Tate's felt this pink marble would be a hot item. You can go into homes fro sale in our mountains and some times see fireplaces clad in pink marble.
Side view of Tate house shows fountains and gives a better look at the Marble the home is made of. There are cottages to stay at and today the home still has family living in it but can be used for functions and events. A great piece of Georgia history and really quite unique and I think pretty. Where is the Tate house?
Located in the beautiful North Georgia Mountains of course. This is the view from the front porch.
