In the Spring of 1969, a series of mysterious fires plagued the Dahlonega area. Old and vacant buildings were set ablaze for no apparent reason. This caused great concern among the local residents who were wondering if perhaps they might be next. Not only did the interest in the Dahlonega fires make local news, but the story was reported as far away as Australia! In July 1969, when City Hall caught fire, clues finally began to emerge about who was responsible. Retired FBI agent and LCHS member Jim Kinney will tell this exciting story.  Come and bring a friend
