Calhoun was the capital of the Cherokee Nation until 1835, when President Jackson forced them to move to Oklahoma. Following their relocation, Georgia claimed the lands that became Gordon County. A small town, first known as Dawsonville, was created, but later renamed in honor of U.S. Senator John C. Calhoun following his death in 1850.
