One Off Main was built in 1938 by Nina Head, the wife of Dr. Homer Head. Dr. and Mrs. Head lived next to One Off Main in the big white Victorian which was built in 1900. The first occupant of One Off Main was Graham Dugas, a miner who caused quite a stir when he discovered a large vein of gold in the Calhoun mine in 1939. Originally the home was a 4 room structure with 2 rooms up and 2 rooms down. It was expanded in the 1990s and operated as the Royal Guard Inn for many years. Today it welcomes new guests as One Off Main.
Since 2018, Fiona and Lance Bagley are the owners and innkeepers of One Off Main. Both are former Army Officers. Fiona served in the British Army as a Captain in the Royal Military Police, and Lance was an Infantry Officer and Airborne Ranger. They met in West Berlin, West Germany, tore down the Berlin Wall together, ended the Cold War, and returned to the US. After successfully raising three lovely daughters, they decided that Dahlonega would be the site of their next life adventure.
