Historic Public Square

Dahlonega’s historic public square is the hub of the county’s thriving tourism industry, and residents enjoy the city’s charm as much as visitors do. Connected by shaded brick sidewalks, shops, galleries, restaurants, and entertainment spots fill our 19th century buildings. It’s not unusual to hear musicians jamming on the square and see artists with their sketch pads whiling away breezy afternoons.\r\n\r\nEnjoy history, charm, fine dining, local wines and unique retail stores in a beautiful and memorable atmosphere. Dahlonega\'s Downtown District -- listed on the National Register -- features historic streets and public square, walking tours, and green-space parks and is one of the South\'s most quaint and active town centers. Downtown Dahlonega is an award-winning Main Street City and an exciting place to visit, shop, live, and do business.
