Landmarks & Legends Historic Walking Tour

To preserve the legends and honor the downtown Dahlonega historic district, the Dahlonega Stories history plaque program began in 2009. The plaques provide an opportunity to learn more about these buildings, which are part of the National Register Historic District. Each plaque features a brief narrative written by Anne Dismukes Amerson, author of “Dahlonega’s Historic Public Square, Then & Now Stories about the Buildings and the People”.

As you visit the retail shops, restaurants, and service businesses along the tour, be sure to go inside and ask each business owner about the history of their property. They have more legends and details to share about the history of their building and the colorful characters that have inhabited the buildings over the years.
