Arts & Museums
Located in the circa 1885 Crown Cotton Mill, this historical society and museum highlights the Cherokees, the Civil War, and the early settlers through a wide range of historical displays. Beautiful gardens, research materials, and a bedspread museum are also on site.
This museum is housed in a circa 1840 house, the oldest home in Dalton, and features many rooms of interest to the historian and antiques buff. Exhibits on Dalton's textile industry, chenille-tufting, Native American history, Civil War artifacts, and Georgia poet Robert Loveman are featured throughout this museum.
This may be the oddest museum in town, but definitely worth a visit. If you enjoy medieval myths and legends or collect dragons of any sort, you must stop by this museum and gift store. Thousands of dragons from medieval to oriental designs are represented in this collection; others available for purchase. In addition to the fire-breathing creatures, the gift shop carries costume jewelry, art prints, T-shirts, figurines and pewter collectibles.
