The Rabun Colony Club consisted of a group of Atlantans who operated a hunting & fishing club in Rabun
County in the early part of the 20th century.   They had built a large house of creek rocks and laid out this
foundation for a much larger lodge, before the combined circumstances of World War I and the breaking
of their lake dam forced them to abandon their plans.   The property was sold to a Mr. Latimer in 1918.
