Young Harris Profile


Overview

Young Harris is a tiny city located in the state of Georgia. With a population of 1,325 people and just one neighborhood, Young Harris is the 334th largest community in Georgia. Young Harris has seen a significant amount of newer housing growth in recent years. Quite often, new home construction is the result of new residents moving in who are middle class or wealthier, attracted by jobs, a healthy local economy, or other amenities as they leave nearby or far away areas for greener pastures. This seems to be the case in Young Harris, where the median household income is $19,125.00.
