Dahlonega Ghosts

The town of Dahlonega is located in the Northeast Mountains  about 60 miles north of Atlanta. It was the site of the first gold rush in the United States. (yes, before California!) The town still has the look and feel of an old mining town. A lot of the original building are from the 1800's. There are at least two buildings that house ghosts! Wiley's Restaurant has a resident ghost that does not like chairs on tables. Every night the employees would put a certain chair up and the ghost would always knock it down. Some employees have had other encounters. I know a little girl who the ghost played with her long hair! It is also reported that the house down the street which now a restaurant is also haunted. An employee of Wiley's said she would never work there again because of the scare of ghosts bumping in the night!

That is so cool,  I haven't been to Dahlonega in a couple of years.  But it's a nice town I will ha ve to get my husband to take me to that restaurant (Wileys).  Have you heard about the picture they have in the old courthouse/gold mesuem? It's of the town cemetery and there are all these odd shapes and faces in it.  They keep it behind the counter so you will have to ask to see it.

Here is a link to a site that contains the picture along with some new.

The old Consolidated gold mine in Dahlonega is pretty creepy too. Mining in those days was dangerous work.

I haven't heard about the cemetery photo. I live in Dahlonega. I will have to check it out. There is definetly a feeling in the town. You can just imagine it during the Gold Rush Days. I haven't been in the Consolidated Mine either.

Have you ever been to Auraria? It was actually the first gold rush town but then Dahlonega grew faster. It is only a broad spot in the road south of Dahlonega. There are reminents of an old hotel there and an old general store. Both are deterrorating very fast and no one is trying to preserve them. Sad.
