If you enjoy history then you will love this spot. There is actually gold in the mortar of the building and if you look close enough you can see it. This area is loaded with lots of history and opportunities for you to experience it first hand.

There is a short video that tells about the Georgia gold rush.

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.
