Historic Hawkins Street

The Community House (1942) 111 North Park Street

This architect-designed building is a good example of a Great Depression era community project accomplished in cooperation with the National Youth Administration. Local in-kind contributions included materials and labor. The stone exterior facing is local stone from the Moore Farm. The community project was inspired by the efforts and expressed concerns of Mrs. J. C. Rogers, wife of the then President of North Georgia College. Mr. John H. Moore and Mr. Ernest Jarrard are remembered for playing important roles in the successful completion of the building project. One stipulation was the requirement to maintain a community library in the building, which was continued until the construction of the Lumpkin County Library was completed in 1983. The Dahlonega Woman's Club, which meets at the Community House, has contributed to the furnishings and interior decor of the building. Overall administration is assigned to a Lumpkin County Parks and Recreation Department.
