Cohutta Springs History

Cohutta Springs History tells the story of a small, historical community in Murray County, Georgia. Cohutta Springs was once famous for its many mineral springs. The history of the little community dates back to the time of the Cherokee Nation. In fact the place name itself derived from the Cherokee. The word "Cohutta" derived from the sound of a Cherokee name, similar to "ga-hut-yi" or "gahuti," as it was pronounced. It was the word for poles of a shed, and referred to the nearby mountains ~ the poles of the shed that held up the sky. Come along as we explore Cohutta Springs and other old communities of Murray County...
