Assayers in Washington, D.C. could tell by looking that gold ore was from the Coosa Mines because it was “the yellowest gold” submitted and its brilliant color set it apart.In the late 18th century the Collins family and the Dyer family settled in the area.Many houses from the early 19th century still stand, or have been moved/or restored in another area of the county to help with preservation.Blairsville's town square is home to the original courthouse, several local businesses, the Seasons Inn Motel, and a local old diner called the "Hole In The Wall".GeographyAccording to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 1.1sqmi, all of it land.ClimateBlairsville has a humid subtropical climate, yet, due to its elevation of 1883ft, typically records far lower temperatures at night than what is encountered in much of the Southeastern U.S, and has slightly higher precipitation totals (56in annually) than most locations in the state; the average diurnal temperature variation exceeds in each of the spring and autumn months.
