Dahlonega’s Gold Rush

Massive 120-stamp mill used to remove gold from ore, est. 1880’s.

Dahlonega is proudly the site of the First Major US Gold Rush. Discovered in 1828, twenty years before the California Gold Rush. Miners used a variety of techniques to remove gold from the mountains. Early miners could simply pick nuggets from creeks or with simple panning, but as gold became more scarce mining style changed.

The mine was abandoned for 75-years, until a coal mining family from Kentucky, wishing for a change of occupation, brought new life to the mine and gave visitors a chance to expereince a turn of the century underground mine.
