Discover Gold in Dahlonega, Georgia

Gold Panning at Consolidated Gold Mine

A few weeks ago, we went to explore the history surrounding the first Gold Rush in the United States. It happened in Dahlonega, Georgia! We visited Consolidated Gold Mine, which was a working mine during the gold rush and converted for tourism in the 1980s. They offer a tour of the underground mine & gold/gem panning!  Sean (10) takes you inside Consolidated Gold Mine & gives you a little history, just in time for the popular Dahlonega Festival, Gold Rush Days, Oct 20-21. Learn more about Gold Rush Days, here. It's the perfect time to visit Dahlonega, right as the fall foliage color is peaking!

One thought on “Discover Gold in Dahlonega, Georgia

  1. What an interesting site.. This born & raised 83 years old North Georgia hillbilly just had to ‘visit’ ya’ll again but by this means rather than driving from the Panama City beach area of No. Florida. Yes, I do have a little bottle of ‘real’ gold in creek water that my long ago children collected when we we up in that area visiting kinfolk. Thanks.
