Tate is an unincorporated town located in Pickens County, Georgia. Originally called Marble Works post office by the United States Postal Service, then Harnageville after Ambrose Harnage, it was the first county seat for Cherokee County, Georgia, which was at that time a large territory for the Cherokee people. There was almost no government at the time, though in 1832 it held the first election for the county, and court was held at the Harnage house. It was renamed after Colonel Sam Tate in 1880.
Tate once included the main quarries of the Georgia Marble Company. It is still known for its marble quarries, which are served by the Georgia Northeastern Railroad. It is also served by nearby Interstate 575 from metro Atlanta, which ends into Georgia 515 just to the south in Nelson. Former Georgia highway 5 is the main street through town, though the GDOT has moved that number onto 575 and 515 now.
The Tate House is a historic home and now a restaurant and bed & breakfast in Tate.
