Dahlonega Stories

The Price Building was erected in 1897 by former Congressman W. P. Price to house Price & Son General Merchandise downstairs and Colonel Price's Law offices upstairs. Later leased to various businesses, it was Dahlonega's first movie theater 1925-1948. Howell and Carol Williams purchased and rehabilitated the structure in 1981 to house a Christmas shop. In 2001 Sam and Julia Norton remodeled the downstairs as the Dessertery & Picnic Café.
