Description

University of North Georgia - 5x7 Dahlonega Greeting Card by Mark Tisdale.

This Dahlonega 5x7 greeting card captures the beautiful architecture of Price Memorial Hall. The 1879 building was built over the foundations of the US Mint that burned in 1878. The mint was part of Dahlonega's gold rush history and had been deeded in 1873 to what was then North Georgia Agricultural College. When I last visited Dahlonega, this was still North Georgia College before the merger with other colleges in the region. In fact, over the years I've had a lot of friends and co-workers who were alumni of this college, but my only experience was my treks into the mountains, mostly in autumn to see the leaves change. And there's a hint of fall color in the leaves in this artwork which are turning a suitable golden color that complements the gold covered steeple of Price Memorial Hall.

This Dahlonega artwork captures a little of the history of the area. Both because this is the oldest surviving building on the campus and because of the golden steeple. Gold leaf was added to the steeple at what was then North Georgia College in 1973 in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the college. It's certainly a beautiful site against blue skies isn't it? In the rolling terrain of Dahlonega, the steeple can be viewed from many vantage points around the city so there's little doubt this is a familiar site if you've visited.
