I love the North Georgia mountains, and especially this little beauty situated there. Site of the less famous gold rush, Dahlonega is a wonderful destination. Friendly people, gorgeous scenery and underappreciated history - Dahlonega deserves more recognition.

Got some interesting view of what was going on with the mining industry in Dahlonega. We learned something new about this old place.

We enjoyed the movie, which was the history of gold mining in the area. Also enjoyed the exhibits. Staff was helpful and informative. Old court house that houses the museum is beautiful and well kept. Do visit the museum before you go to a mine.

This place is amazingly preserved and the displays and movie that you see are very well done. The paid staff was great and the volunteers even better - loved chatting with "Tom".

I doubt it because most of the upstairs furniture and draperies are antiques, but you might want to call since they cater to a lot of campers in that area.
