Should you have a "Scrooge" in your acquaintance, I guarantee a visit to the Dahlonega Town Square, during the Christmas season, will transform his/her heart.

Dahlonega, Georgia, "Norman Rockwell South," is my hometown. It is located in the Appalachian foothills and is the site of this nation's first gold rush, in 1828. Most of the miners have left Dahlonega, but the gold remains...in the hearts of its residents. It is a place that still knows what Christmas is all about and celebrates same.
