1. Lumpkin County Historic Courthouse Marker
Inscription.
The prospering town of Dahlonega needed a suitable courthouse to replace the temporary log one. The well-known North Carolina carpenter and builder Ephraim Clayton was contracted for its construction. It was completed in 1836.

For the next century, residents sought justice at the Courthouse for a variety of disputes from debts owed to pigs stolen to trespasses upon gold claims.
