The city of Dahlonega is the county seat of Lumpkin County, Georgia, United States. As of the 2010 census, the city had a population of 5,242. Dahlonega is located at the north end of the Georgia 400, which connects Dahlonega to Atlanta. It is consistently named as a best place to retire by many different publications. In 1828 Dahlonega was the site of the first major gold rush in the United States. The Dahlonega Gold Museum Historic Site stands in the middle of the town square, housed in the 1836 Lumpkin County Courthouse. From its steps in 1849, Dahlonega Mint assayor Dr. M. F. Stephenson tried to persuade miners to stay in Dahlonega instead of joining the California Gold Rush, saying, "There's millions in it," famously misquoted as "There's gold in them thar hills." Dahlonega is home to the main campus of the University of North Georgia.

The community in which I live consist of retired couples and individuals, working couples and single individuals, as well as families consisting of two or more children. Neighbors communicate on a regular basis and the environment is very friendly and peaceful.
