History of Banning Mills


An Interesting Historical Sketch of Banning Mills.

Historic Banning Mills is located in Georgia's only Hidden Gorge on beautiful Snake Creek in Carroll County, Georgia. It is an area rich in history and home to our country inn, Historic Banning Mills. We invite you to visit and explore this history.

The area was originally home to the Creek and Cherokee nations. They lived in lodges made of pine poles and mud plaster and farmed and hunted along the rich and fertile Chattahoochee River area.
