City of Walhalla

Known as a gateway to the Blue Ridge Mountains, the town of Walhalla is situated in the northwestern section of the state. Founded in 1850 by German immigrants, the name Walhalla, came from the Norse mythology which means “The Garden of the Gods". Soon after the town became the county seat of Oconee in 1868, new settlers began to move into the area, eventually reducing the percentage of the German population.

While much of the original German influence is gone, the town hosts the annual Oktoberfest. Walhalla’s points of interests include the St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Oconee Heritage Center and nearby Issaqueena Falls/Stumphouse Tunnel. The downtown area has a variety of shops offering antiques, pottery, jewelry, baskets and clothing.
