An hour north of Atlanta is the town of Dahlonega which can be translated as" hills of gold." This is the site of the first gold rush in the United States in the early 1800s, and it remains a charming small college town in north Georgia. My husband and I walked through the town and around the campus of North Georgia College, enjoying a lovely November day. I love the shops and the homes on the square.
The courthouse was built in the 1830s and now houses the gold museum.
Gold mined in Dahlonega covers the tower of the college administration building.
The day could not have been more perfect! It was sunny, cool and warm at the same time.
Tulip poplar leaves...
I was having so much fun, walking and taking picturess...I walked two and a half hours without even thinking about it. That is the longest I have been on my feet wthout a break since my accident! Woohoo :)
