Lumpkin County Charter System
The Lumpkin County Charter System, with its five schools and nearly 4,000 students, is located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in North Georgia. Dahlonega, the county seat, is the site of the first Gold Rush in 1828.
Dahlonega is also home of the University of North Georgia, a great educational partner with the school system. And, the surrounding county of Lumpkin offers rich resources such as the Chestatee Regional Library System, cultural arts experiences, festivals, outdoor and recreational activities such as camping, hiking, biking, and historical attractions. (Some of the photos above, capturing just a few of these rich resources, are graciously provided by Jack Anthony , local photographer chronicling life in Dahlonega and surrounding areas.)
