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.

    Sarah Beth

    My experience at the 1888 house could not have been better. Sarah Beth was extremely patient when I would be nervous and annoying. She would offer suggestions and ideas for decorating. She was wonderful always professional, organized and timely. I would strongly recommend this venue.

    Rehearsal Party

    1888 House is a fantastic spot to have your next party. I had about 80 guests at my rehearsal party and there were guests mingling in every room. We had a band set up downstairs (Crossroads is fabulous) and the bar upstairs and it worked out really well!
