McCAYSVILLE. Ga. – The Fannin County Chamber of Commerce held two ribbon cuttings this week to celebrate the recent openings of the McCaysville Visitor Center and April’s Attic home decor store.
A host of local dignitaries joined with McCaysville business owners and citizens as well as Fannin County Chamber of Commerce representatives to celebrate the ribbon cutting for the new McCaysville Visitor Center Wednesday, Jan. 10. Located on East Market Street in downtown McCaysville, the new visitor center overlooks the Toccoa River and provides bountiful information to guests on the Trout Capital of Georgia and the rich history of Copper Basin. Regarding the influx of tourists, river-goers, and train riders who descend on the towns of McCaysville and Copperhill, Tennessee, Sarah Mickens, information specialist for the McCaysville Visitor Center stated, “Everyone always asks, ‘What is there to do here?’ That’s what the visitor center is here for, to give that knowledge and to promote the area businesses and attractions.”
Representatives from the Fannin County Chamber of Commerce met with owners and partners from April’s Attic at 6850 Appalachian Hwy. in Blue Ridge Tuesday, Jan. 9, for a ribbon cutting. April’s Attic is a home decor boutique specializing in antiques and collectibles.
