Experience the charm and gentility of the historic South as you journey along Georgia’s Antebellum Trail through the heart of Macon, Madison and Milledgeville! Beginning in the former capital city of Milledgeville, enjoy an expert-led exploration of the Governor’s Mansion — a National Historic Landmark — and experience the city via trolley. Marvel in the architecture of iconic mansions such as Heritage Hall in Madison, as well as the Cannonball House and Hay House in Macon. Live reenactments at historic sites tell stories of the Civil War, while traditional cooking and evening entertainment help you experience true Southern hospitality.
