Rachel Star Event
Links Hamilton History & Dalton Utilities
Each year since 1935, Dalton Utilities has lit the star on Mount Rachel, signaling to Dalton residents & visitors that the Christmas season has begun. The star also calls attention to Mount Rachel & the ladies for whom it was named, Rachel Hamilton & Rachel, the daughter of John & Rachel Hamilton.
On Dec. 1, celebrate WMHS by visiting the Hamilton House between 3 and 5 pm to hear more about Rachel Hamilton and Mount Rachel. Then walk next door to the Crown Gardens & Archives for the lighting of the star at dusk.
The choir of First Presbyterian Church has been invited to sing Christmas carols. Rachel & John Hamilton were among the church founders.
