Chattahoochee Trace

The Chattahoochee Trace of Alabama and Georgia, a pleasing blend of Old South traditions and New South innovations, is a fascinating place to visit and live.

The Chattahoochee Trace promotes heritage tourism, history eduction, and historic preservation.  A mecca for history buffs, campers, hunters, cyclists, and vacationers, endless historic and recreational attractions are here to be explored and enjoyed. Indian mounds, historic buildings, covered bridges and old mills, championship golf courses, lunker-filled lakes, pilgrimages, and festivals abound throughout the resplendent Chattahoochee Trace where the romanticism of the past blends readily with the spirit of the present.

The Chattahoochee Trace is an eighteen county region in Alabama and Georgia promoted by the Historic Chattahoochee Commission (HCC). Organized in 1970. In 1978 the Georgia General Assembly and the Alabama Legislature passed identical legislation to establish an interstate compact for the operation of the Commission. Final approval of the compact came in October of that year when the same bill cleared the U.S. Congress and President Carter signed it into law. Alabama counties include Barbour, Chambers, Dale, Henry, Houston, Lee, and Russell; Georgia counties include Chattahoochee, Clay, Decatur, Early, Harris, Muscogee, Quitman, Randolph, Seminole, Stewart, and Troup.
