Copperhill is a city in Polk County, Tennessee, United States. The population was 354 at the 2010 census. It is included in the Cleveland Metropolitan Statistical Area. For years, up until the 1980s, the production of copper and acid denuded the area of any greenery, although the area has now been greatly reforested, due to a multi-million dollar effort by the successor companies to the original copper company. The copper and acid plants have been permanently closed and most of the plant infrastructure already removed and sold overseas. Much of the scrap metals from the site have been removed and sold to China. Glenn Springs Holdings has cleaned and purified all the surrounding creeks and waterways, and water quality is now back to near pristine condition according to published EPA and TN Department of Environmental Conservation studies.The town is now a tourist attraction, with near daily rail excursions from Blue Ridge, Georgia on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railroad. Whitewater rafting on the Ocoee River also attracts many people and other outdoor activities such as Mountain Biking and Hiking are also popular in the area.GeographyCopperhill is located at , situated in extreme southeast Tennessee, bordering North Georgia.Its twin city is McCaysville, Georgia, with the two situated as a single town aligned along a northwestward-flowing river, known as the Toccoa River in Georgia, and the Ocoee River in Tennessee, rather than the east/west state line, which cuts diagonally across streets and through buildings. There is a main downtown area, which the town shares with McCaysville, GA, and it retains a historic feel of when it was thriving. The main street through town is Ocoee Street, which becomes Toccoa Street to the east-southeast in McCaysville. A truss bridge over the river at the state line links them to Blue Ridge Drive to the south-southwest.
