John Dillard and his son James bought 4 lots of 250 acres apiece in the valley of the Little Tennessee River in 1821, but Dillard and his family had moved to the area in 1794. A Revolutionary War veteran, John served under General Andrews Pickens during that war and later conflicts, although those were without the blessing of the fledgling U.S. government. The purchase was signed by his son James. At age 60, the elder Dillard had seen the area during his battles under Pickens.

John died in 1842 at the age of 82. It was unusual for settlers to live much older than 60 at the time. His son James became Justice of the Peace for the county and was elected to the state house in 1824. Andrew Jackson Ritchie, who founded the Rabun Gap-Nachoochee School, was a direct descendant.

In 1913 the home that became the Dillard House was built along the road that would become U.S. Highway 441. Located just south of the Georgia-North Carolina line, Dillard is nestled in the rugged mountains of northeast Georgia in Rabun County. These hills are among the oldest in the world.
