County: Union

One of the principal tributaries of Hiwassee river, the Nottely River derives its name from the Cherokee word Na`du li`, a former Cherokee settlement on the river, near the Georgia line, in Cherokee County, North Carolina. The upper slopes of this valley are in the Chattahoochee National Forest. Part of the first tract of land purchased by the United States under the Weeks law for flood control purposes can be seen on the horizon near Skeenah Gap. In 1912 Andrew and N.W. Gennett sold 32,000 acres- for the sum of $220,626.22. With this purchase the National Forests of the Eastern United States were begun.
