History
Catherine and Johnny Ariemma purchased the Higgins Home, now called The 1888 House, in 2016 and restored it to its original gorgeous state. Sarah Beth Wright, the daughter of Catherine and Johnny, manages the venue and handles all events and event needs. The house was originally constructed in 1881 and was home to many notable individuals, including presidents of the University of North Georgia, a judge, and a first editor of the local newspaper The Dahlonega Nugget. The family are happy to share the history of the house and would be honored if you chose the 1888 House’s beautiful property to host your wedding and other events.

    Nice event facility

    There is a sparsity of event facilities in the town. This facility has a lot of charm and met our needs quite well.
    The staff were helpful and a good source of help in getting good vendors. Things went very well and everyone commented on how nice things were.
