Crossroads and Community
Located in formerly-rural DeKalb County, the community of Klondike
contains some of the oldest buildings in the National Heritage Area.
Although now part of metro-Atlanta, the landscape of the Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area began as an agricultural landscape, filled with farms and small crossroads communities. Klondike, now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was one such community. The oldest houses here date back to the 19th century. Klondike and South Goddard roads form crossroads of this historic community.
Predating the Civil War
Many of the buildings – including houses, farms, outbuildings and a store – in the Klondike National Historic District include stone quarried from Arabia Mountain. This rural community predates the Civil War (the Housworth-Moseley dates back to circa 1850) and was at one point part of the agricultural landscape that dominated the area.
