Brasstown Bald

Brasstown Bald

formerly  Mount Enotah 

      highest point in Georgia, U.S., reaching an elevation of 4,784 feet (1,458 metres). It lies in the northwest part of the state in the Blue Ridge Mountains, 9 miles (14 km) east of Blairsville and just south of the North Carolina border. Heavily wooded, the mountain is within Chattahoochee National Forest, and its bare summit is topped by a five-story lookout tower. The name Brasstown probably derives from a misinterpretation of the Cherokee Indian name Itse'yi, meaning “green place,” which was confused with the name Untsai'yi, meaning “brass.”
