GOLDRU~1.jpg (95864 bytes)

Picture of the Nuckolls Hotel in Auraria Georgia

Picture furnished by Sue Goforth

 

Nathaniel was in Georgia at the time of the Gold Rush in 1832.  He set up a hotel in "Knucklesville" and helped establish the community during this time.  The town was only named this for a short while until being officially named, Auraria Georgia.  The people today still remember the Nuckolls family fondly.  Nathaniel left GA for AL for a while.  Many of his descendants still live in AL.  Some live in south GA where he died.

 

 

The picture below is a picture of the Hotel he once owned during the Gold Rush days of GA.

The Nuckolls Hotel is still standing today in 1998 but doesn't look as good as it did when the picture was taken in the 1970's of it at the Picture site!

This is a contribution that was submitted to the WFT at Broderband.  I cannot vouch for the accuracy but put it here as a guide for reserachers.
