Written by // Chris Worick Categories // History & Heritage

One block north of the Dahlonega Public Square lies Hancock Park. Known for the seasonal farmers market, free concerts, and First Friday movie events in the summer, Hancock Park also is home to one of Dahlonega's strangest gold mining attractions. Made of riveted boiler plate iron, this three ton submersible is something which definitely catches the eye and draws you in for a closer look.

Long Mountain Lodge -- a Little Piece of Heaven in the Mountains

Long Mountain Lodge is known for the peace and tranquility you feel when you stay there, the welcome you'll receive when you get  there, the knowledge and experience your hosts have in directing you to things to do and places to go during your stay. And WAFFLES!!! 

This blog was written by the Quigleys -- Long Mountain Lodge owners, and their family. It's a brief recommended itinerary that's pleasant and not too rushed.
