Explore Pine Mountain Gold Museum, located on the site of an actual gold strike and West Georgia's only authentic 19th century gold stamp mill.  Enjoy our historic downtown with its authentic architecture, and be sure to stop by and view the architecture of Wick's Tavern, the oldest commercial structure in West Georgia.
