The museum was enjoyed by all the husbands in our group while we shopped. They enjoyed learning the history of the gold rush in this area of the US.

If you’re going to DeHlinega, Georgia, you definitely want to stop by and visit the gold museum. Home of the first gold mines in the United States and the first mint, it’s very interesting and well worth the time.

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.

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.
