9-24tbtcollage2 We’re throwing it back this Thursday. Waaaay back.
Check out an old-timey sampling of some of our favorites pics from Dahlonega’s “days of yore…”


Sheriff William Harrison Satterfield didn’t just enforce the law, he played a mean fiddle. (Photo provided by Charles Satterfield)

Homer Perry takes his roadster for a spin in 1925 on the dirt roads of Dahlonega alongside Claire Ralston, Ollie Mae Chambers, Lucille Thurman and Hoyt Lance (he’s in the back seat, hiding his face).

If you want more old-time photos we have a whole book of them called the Pictorial History of Lumpkin County, Volume II. Give us a call at 706-864-3613 or drop by The Dahlonega Nugget office to pick up your copy before they’re all gone!
