Take the Plunge!

What better time to focus on affairs of the heart than right around Valentines Day? In this case we’re talking literal hearts, and efforts to keep them beating, which is a cause that’s been adopted by the Leadership Lumpkin Class of 2016.

Every Name Has a Story

Every Name Has a Story

The name of Dahlonega was originally Talonega, the Cherokee word meaning "gold" or "yellow metal." Several different spellings such as Tahloneka, Talounaga, and Dahlochnega appear on early maps and documents of the county. The official spelling and pronunciation as we know it today, Dahlonega (Da-lahn-e-ga) was adopted in November of 1833.

How that came to be is a story that’s just as unique as the town itself and its curiously distinctive (and often mispronounced) name.
