Whitfield County was formed from part of Murray County in 1851. Georgia's 97th county was named for the Reverend George Whitefield, the founder of the Bethesda Orphan House in Savannah. The spelling of the county's name was changed to reflect the way it was pronounced.

Dalton is the gateway to the 150 mile Chieftain's Trail which traces the path of the Cherokee Indian sites located in northwest Georgia.

Tunnel Hill is named for the Western & Atlantic Railroad Tunnel which was cut through Chetoogeta Mountain and terminated at the site of the city. Dalton is known as the "Carpet Capital of the World." Some of the local festivals include the Prater's Mill Country Fair, Tunnel Hill Civil War Battlefield Reenactment, Celtic Festival in Tunnel Hill , and the CAG Fine Arts Festival.
