      Independence Cottage:

      Independence  Cottage was built in 1876, the centennial of the signing of The Declaration of Independence in 1776.   It was built by Colonel Robert Hughes Moore, a direct descendant of the brother of George Walton, a signer of the Declaration and later a Governor of Georgia and a U.S. Senator.

      George Walton lived in Augusta, and his low-country cottage, Meadow Garden, still exists today as one of Georgia’s oldest surviving dwellings.  It is currently owned and operated by the Georgia State Society Daughters of the American Revolution.

      Comparison of photos of Meadow Garden and Independence Cottage has led  historians to conclude  that Col. Moore modeled Independence Cottage after the home place of his distinguished ancestor.

      The Cottage has been tastefully restored to embrace both the old and the new.   Furnished with antiques and “low-country” decor combined with flat screen TVs and a modern kitchen.   This unit comfortably sleeps 4.

      And, best of all it is conveniently two blocks from the Historic Square in Downtown Dahlonega where you will find numerous restaurants, shopping opportunities, and live entertainment… all within steps of Independence Cottage!
