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.

A night to remember
The 1888 House was the perfect venue for our son’s wedding rehearsal dinner. Sarah Beth and her staff are professional and so helpful. The venue is charming and received so many compliments from family and friends. It truly was an evening to remember always. The upstairs porch was ideal for cocktail hour! The grandchildren enjoyed the outside porch.Sent on 04/09/2019
