Local resident and UNG history student Chris Berkelaar will present “Innovations In Lumpkin County.” for our June program. In the latter half of the nineteenth century, Lumpkin County became a testing area for many unique and unusual methods of mining and other economic ventures. Chris’ presentation will tell about some of the interesting inventions and technologies used, and in some cases created in Dahlonega. Men of vision such as Frank Hall and Philologus Hawkins Loud are two of the notable inventors whom Chris will highlight in his program.
