And, not since 1918 has there been a U.S. coast to coast path for a total solar eclipse. On August 21, 2017 a total eclipse will shadow a 65-mile-wide path through 14 states, beginning in Oregon and exiting the South Carolina coast. Fortunately for The Dillard House, Clayton, Rabun Gap, and Dillard in Rabun County are located in the centerline of the path of totality which will occur at 2:35:45 PM and last for 2 minutes, 34 seconds. The entire event will take place over a couple of hours and viewers will have to wear protective eyewear. Only those in the path of totality can take their glasses off during the couple of minutes of totality.Hotels rooms are booked for Sunday and Monday nights. However, rooms are still available during Friday and Saturday night.
