Dillard is a city in Rabun County, Georgia. As of the 2000 census, the city population was 198.

John Dillard settled in the area around what is now Dillard with his son, James Dillard, about 1823. James took title to 1,000 acres of land by purchasing the lottery rights of land holders in Rabun County. John Dillard served as a lieutenant in the Virginia Militia in the American Revolution where he was in the Battle of Guilford Court House and other battles. Both James and John were residents of Buncombe County, North Carolina prior to their settlement on lands now comprising Dillard, Georgia.

According to the United States Census Bureau, Dillard has a total area of 1.5 square miles, all of it land. The city is located in the Little Tennessee River valley immediately south of the North Carolina border and is surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Here is some more information from the official Dillard city website

By 1905, Dillard was a thriving mountain town with a blacksmith shop, livery stable, two general merchandise stores, a cobbler, open air market, two boarding houses, a church and a school. Two water powered grain mills and a saw mill were nearby. And in 1907, Dillard was connected to the outside world when the railroad arrived.

Arthur Dillard, the great-grandson of John Dillard, operated a general store and his wife, Carrie, opened a boarding house which later became The Dillard House. The town prospered and during the twenties electricity and telephones were introduced. The road was relocated and widened and became designated as US Highway 23/441.

Arthur and Carrie’s businesses grew and flourished. In 1923, they gave a piece of land behind their store to be used for a community school. The brick building originally built for the school is now known as the Dillard City Hall.
