The City of Dahlonega is looking a lot like Christmas. That’s because a made for television Christmas movie for the HALLMARK Channel is setting up production there.
Filming for “Shooting Christmas” began this week and Dahlonega Director of Tourism David Zunker said on WDUN’s Afternoon News Wrap Wednesday that the production crews were hard at work, as there’s a quick turnaround time. The filming should be wrapped by October 13, one day ahead of Gold Rush on October 14, Zucker said.
“They were going to scout seven different communities, towns within Georgia and they were going to do it over a weekend. They came to Dahlonega and never left,” Zunker said. “They loved what they saw immediately, they saw the possibilities, they loved the historic public square downtown and they saw a number of buildings that were going to work for them.” more

A few years back the State of Georgia was making some cut-backs. The Museum was part of the impact by lack of funding. So that was when the organization was formed to assist them in this time of need. If you want to assist the Gold Museum in Donations they have a Friends organization that is very busy helping the Museum with much-needed renovations and other expenses.

The museum is housed inside the 1836 Lumpkin County Courthouse, the oldest courthouse in Georgia. Visitors can also explore the courthouse features, including beautiful wooden chapel seats from 1889 and the judge’s chambers. The town of Dahlonega is a popular destination for gold panning, shopping, and sightseeing.
