Walasi-Yi Interpretive Center
Experience a bit of southern history when you travel across northern Georgia – check out the Walasi-Yi Interpretive Center, south of Blairsville. A small building made of stone, the Walasi-Yi Interpretive Center is neatly tucked away at Neels Gap on the eastern threshold of Blood Mountain. As a man-made structure, it's the only place where the Appalachian Trail passes through something not of nature.
In it's earliest days, the Walasi-Yi Center was built by a logging company as a general use structure. It was rebuilt in its current form in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps. Up to 1965 it had operated as a small diner and inn. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1977. As you explore the northern reaches of Georgia – hiking and mountain biking are popular choices – be sure to stop by the Walasi-Yi Interpretive Center for a piece of authentic Georgian history.
