Stonepile Gap

Pass not by, Stranger! Stop! Silently bare your head, drop a stone upon her grave, and make a wish straight from your heart. The Spirit of Eternal Youth and Happiness hovers near to grant the wishes of all who love the hills and valleys of her native home

Song of Trahlyta

stonepilegapIf you’ve ever ridden through the area near Suches and Dahlonega, GA you probably recall seeing a pile of stones alongside the road where Highway 60 and Highway 19 split. This marks the grave of a Cherokee princess, Trahlyta. The rocks are said to be over the grave of a Cherokee Indian Princess who loved the forest and called the mountains of North Georgia home.

Trahlyta, according to legend, lived on a mountain near her grave. A Mountain Medicine Man told her to walk along a path, drink from a spring and wish to never grow old. “You will become more beautiful with each sip” the voice told her. She followed the path and drank from the spring. Word of her beauty quickly spread throughout the mountain.

Trahlyta rejected as her suitor a Cherokee warrior named Wahsega. So, Wahsega kidnapped Trahlyta and took her to his home. She begged and pleaded for her release, but Wahsega would not permit it. With each day her strength waned, her happiness gone, longing for her mountain forest. As she lay dying Trahlyta asked to be buried in the mountain paradise from which she had come. On her death bed she said: “Strangers, as they pass by, may drop a stone on my grave and they too shall be young and happy, as I once was,” she said, “What they wish for shall be theirs!.”

Over the years, as they passed the grave, Cherokee, and later whites, would pick up a nearby stone and add it to her grave for good luck.  Twice men have attempted to move the grave during road construction. Both times at least one person died in an accident while moving the pile. The stone grave remains today in the same place it has always been. The spring she’d once walked upon and drank from for her youth and beauty is now Porter Springs. In the latter half of the 19th Century became a stopping point for those seeking the water that Trahlyta had sipped to become eternally young.”
