About Jasper Georgia
Jasper was founded in 1853 as the seat of the newly formed Pickens County. It was incorporated in 1857 as a town and in 1957 as a city. The community is named for William Jasper, a hero of the American Revolutionary War.
Nicknamed "The First Mountain City," Jasper is located 50 miles north of Atlanta, Georgia. The Tate House was built by local marble baron Sam Tate in the 1920's and now sits adjacent to Tate Elementary.
