Description 

NACOOCHEE VALLEY VALLEY OF THE EVENING STAR This valley has long fascinated travelers, writers and artists. It was farmed for centuries by Indians and white men alike. The valley was devastated by Spanish and American gold hunters and timbermen and has been carefully nurtured by prosperous summer residents and progressive farmers. The valley is watered by Sautee and Duke’s Creeks and the Chattahoochee River. These streams formed the rich alluvial soils, laced the soils with placer gold, and powered small industries. Longtime residents of the valley have been the Dyers, Glens, Hardmans, Lumsdens, Nichols, Richardson and Williams 154-10 GEORGIA HISTORIC MARKER 1980
