Juanita Bellavance, Spring foliage rising concept drawing, From the Chestatee River portfolio, 2021, Charcoal on paper, 24 x 24 inches
In researching a little about the river I learned that "Chestatee" originates from the language of the Cherokee nation. It roughly translates to "place of lights" or "river of lights" due to the history of the Cherokee people using the forests around the river as hunting grounds. They would often use pine torches to light their way and called the River Chestatee.
Dahlonega, GA was a gold mining town. In 1857, the Boley Fields Vein was discovered and produced thousands of pennyweights of gold until it was lost. Later, in an attempt to relocate the vein, the river was rerouted 1/2 mile to a new channel.
