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.

Ugly Cousin – everyone’s got one.

Dahlonega has one too – but theirs is one of the most talented bluegrass and old-fashioned music bands around and they’ll be performing at 8 pm on Saturday, January 9 at the Crimson Moon, just off the historic Public Square in downtown Dahlonega.

Celebrate the New Year in Dahlonega!

First First Night?

Not quite. Actually Dahlonega’s very first (and presumably annual) First Night celebration will take place this year on the last night before the first day of the New Year. First Nights around the country have always been called that so we’ll have to go with it.
