The Historic Vickery House is the headquarters of the Georgia Appalachian Studies Center.

The Dahlonega Club, a community organization, restored the house in 1976 as a bicentennial project.

In 2007, the club donated the 3,065 square foot building and 1.296 acres of land to the university to "provide the Center a strong physical presence in the community that will enhance the Center’s ability to fulfill its mission to contribute to the quality of life of the Georgia Appalachian community through service, preservation, education, awareness, and collaboration" (USG Board of Regents, 2007).

Picking Porch, an old time music jam, now meets every Friday from 11 to 1 at the old Chapel of the historic Dahlonega Baptist Church, next to the Fine Arts Annex.

Vickery House Restored

The Vickery House stands in tribute to its owners, tenants and guests who played significant roles in our past – in the Gold Rush era, in the development of the North Georgia College as an educational institution and in the state of Georgia.
 - Ella Ray Oakes, founder of the Dahlonega Club, the community organization that restored the Vickery House in 1976.
