The Georgia Trust Fall Ramble
October 12-14, 2012
LaGrange | Warm Springs | Pine Mountain | Talbotton
Fall foliage and cooler temperatures bring the Fall Ramble, so mark your calendars for October 12-14, 2012, and plan to join us as we explore LaGrange, Warm Springs, Pine Mountain and Talbotton. The itinerary is filled with a variety of interesting historic sites, including charming downtown centers, splendid homes, lovely gardens, and the fascinating places associated with President Franklin D. Roosevelt's many visits for therapeutic treatment. We'll culminate the weekend with a brunch and tours of the 35-acre Hills & Dales Estate, including the Neel Reid designed home of the Fuller E. Callaway Family.
Upper-level Georgia Trust members are in for a special treat at the Fall Ramble's Heritage Reception, to be held at Blue Springs (pictured at right) near Callaway Gardens. Cason and Virginia Callaway purchased the 1,000-acre watershed surrounding a quartzite aquifer that supplies Blue Springs around 1930. The reception will be held at a picturesque pavilion next to a one-acre, spring-fed pool blasted out of quartzite rock. President Roosevelt was a frequent visitor. To upgrade your membership to be a part of this event, call the Georgia Trust Membership Manager at 404-885-7805.
The diverse richness of West Georgia’s historic treasures make the 2012 Fall Ramble one not to be missed!

What is a Ramble?
Rambles feature exclusive tours and social events in historic properties not usually open to the public. Tours of historic homes and buildings are self-guided, and guests provide their own transportation. Maps and programs are provided at packet pick-up. Catered meals are offered as part of registration packages; however, there are tour-only (no meals) options as well. View registration options.
These field trips attract hundreds of participants per Ramble and are offered two weekends each year (fall and spring). Recent Rambles have included Atlanta, Dahlonega, Macon, and Augusta. Want to see what it's all about? Join us in LaGrange, Warm Springs and Pine Mountain, October 12-14!
