The North Georgia Agricultural College



Neither of the two proposed uses came to fruition, and the building was donated in April 1871 to the State of Georgia, for use as an educational facility. The former mint building became the main facility of the newly created North Georgia Agricultural College in 1873.
Classes were held in the building, which also served as the residence for the family of the college president, as well as some of the faculty and students. Fire broke out early in the morning of December 20, 1878 and the former mint structure was destroyed in the ensuing conflagration. The townspeople of Dahlonega were determined to see that the college continued and a new college building was constructed on the old mint's undamaged granite foundation, being completed in 1880.
