The Granite Capital of the World

Welcome to Elbert County. Known as the Granite Capital of the World, we invite you to come visit our unique community and experience our historic roots and our beautiful surroundings. 

We are located on two beautiful lakes, Clarks Hill and Richard B. Russell.  Lake Russell offers 26,650 acres of some of the state’s finest fishing and boating.  Richard B. Russell State Park has facilities which include 28 tent, trailer and RV sites, 20 cottages, volleyball area, picnic shelters, walking/biking trails, disk golf, canoeing, pedal boats and a nature trail. 

Bobby Brown Park is a 664 acre outdoor recreation area beautifully situated on a peninsula between the Broad and Savannah Rivers that flow into the upper end of Clarks Hill Lake. Bobby Brown Park is operated and maintained by the Elbert County Parks and Recreation Department. The park was named in memory of Lt. Robert T. Brown of the US Navy who gave his life during WWII. Come visit us for a fun camping getaway, a picnic at the lake or a relaxing boating or fishing trip on the largest man-made lake East of the Mississippi River.

If hunting is your passion, you will find turkeys, deer and quail throughout the county. 

Golfing at its finest can be found at the Arrowhead Pointe Golf Course.  Arrowhead Pointe was named in's Top 10 Courses in Georgia and is a public course. 

Entertainment can be found at the Elbert Theatre which reopened for use as a performing arts facility in 2001.

Several tourist attractions can also be found in Elbert County.  The Georgia Guidestones, Elberton’s most unusual granite monument, will leave you with a lot of questions as it is a mystery for the many visitors who visit the site.  No one knows the identity of a group of sponsors who provided specifications for the 19-foot-high monument. 

Visit the Granite Museum which contains historical exhibits, artifacts, educational displays and materials depicting current and past events in the rich heritage of the Elberton Granite Industry. 

Other attractions include Nancy Hart Cabin, the Bicentennial Memorial and Fountain, the Granite Bowl and Old Dan Tucker’s Grave.  Elbert County, the world’s granite capital and so much more!

We invite you to, “Visit for a day and we believe you will stay for a lifetime.”
