Cornelia, Georgia

Cornelia, Georgia

Cornelia is located in Habersham County, Georgia. Cornelia Georgia’s Big Red Apple, located at the old train depot in downtown, pays homage to the apple and apple growers of the county. Built of steel and concrete in 1925, the Big Red Apple statue, according to Habersham County, weighs 5,200 pounds and is 7 feet high (it sits on a pedestal, so it is significantly taller than 7 feet).

Through the years downtown Cornelia changed dramatically. As the railroad era passed the old depot in Cornelia was closed and boarded up, and the once central location was only a side street. A recent renovation has brought the Cornelia Depot back to life and the quiet “Big Red Apple” is the focal point of a yearly festival held the first week in October, along with a 5K road race held at the end of October.
