Chatsworth is located in Murray County which was founded in 1832. Murray County was known as the heart of the Cherokee Nation in north Georgia at that time. Then county seat, Spring Place, was the home of Chief Joe Vann as well as a Moravian settlement. The Moravians came to the area to bring the Gospel to the Cherokee. But in 1913 the people of Murray County voted to move the county seat to Chatsworth as it was more centrally located and near the railroad lines. In 1916 this beautiful courthouse was built at the center of town.
