Talking Rock is nestled in the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains between the towns of Ellijay and Jasper in Pickens County. Happily, the third smallest town in the state of Georgia, Talking Rock has not changed much since it’s beginning in 1883, when the train was the lifeline of the town. Talking Rock's history is rich with stories about the Trail of Tears, the Civil War, the railroad and the Great Depression. The origination of our town's name is unclear and there are many interesting stories regarding its derivation. Some individuals believe that it's from the noise of the water rolling over the rocks in our beautiful creek, while other like the story of folks sitting for a spell on a rock to have a talk with a neighbor. Still others believe that the name originated with the local Indians. Whatever it's origination; it's an unforgettable name and an unforgettable place!
Mountain Creek Hollow is located in Gilmer County but carries a Talking Rock mailing address. It is a beautiful gated mountain community over approximately 275+ acres of rolling scenic and wooded mountains and streams. It has approximately 50 homes and 115 home or lot owners. We enjoy a peaceful existence sharing our space with deer, wild turkeys, turtles, fox and black bears. We enjoy amenities such as a trout pond, butterfly garden, waterfalls, and a covered bridge where there is a neighborhood shelter by Fausett Creek
