Ball Ground, in the northern part of Cherokee County, Georgia, is a lively community of almost 1,000 residents. Two and one-half miles to the east of the town, near the confluence of Long-Swamp Creek and the Etowah River, is the traditional site of 'Taliwa', the most decisive battle of the war between Cherokee and Creek Indians in the 1700's. Cherokee history tells that the conflict over territory was determined by a stickball game here.

Before the railroad came through in 1882, the community was almost purely agricultural, consisting of two country stores and a few dwellings. After the railroad, the town grew as a result of the marble-working industry. Today, Ball Ground is growing as businesses and homeowners are pushing into the North Georgia mountains along the I-575 corridor. It boasts a number of new subdivisions and light industry.
