Dahlonega: A 2016 Great American Main Street Award Winner

The National Main Street Center, Inc. announced in 2016 that Dahlonega, Georgia had been chosen as a 2016 Great American Main Street Award® (GAMSA) winner. The City of Dahlonega and the Dahlonega Main Street program were recognized at the 2016 Main Street Now Conference held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

“Downtown Dahlonega is a sparkling example of how careful planning, small business support, and historic preservation can combine to create a thriving downtown,” said Patrice Frey, president, and CEO of the National Main Street Center. “Its downtown district, art galleries, restored theater and courthouse stand out in North Georgia, making Dahlonega a truly distinctive shopping and dining destination and a charming place to call home.”
