In 1994, the National Register of Historic Places added the McLemore Cove Historic District to its list of treasured locations. There is also a lot of information about McLemore Cove housed on the National Archives site.

The cove is named from Robert and John McLemore, sons of a white trader and a Cherokee mother. Along with its scenic beauty, McLemore Cove is known for antebellum structures, vast farmlands and houses dating back into the 1890’s.

See this marvel of mother nature for yourself. The cove is located about three miles south of Chickamauga, in an area roughly bounded by Lookout and Pigeon Mountain. You can get there by taking GA 193 west from LaFayette and traveling about eight miles to Davis Crossroads.
