The Georgia Trust is not going to let last year's Hurricane Matthew stop us! We are planning a Fall Ramble "do-over" in 2017 and it will be even better than before!

The Georgia Trust will head downriver to discover Savannah's early streetcar suburbs, its beloved downtown, and the lowcountry of the Moon River District. Mark your calendars to tour some of Savannah's best preservation projects, new and old. Tours will include private homes, recently rehabilitated projects, and behind-the-scenes access to projects in progress. Guests will enjoy a menu indicative of the Lowcountry, to be enjoyed amidst the backdrop of the Charles H. Morris Center, Three Rivers and Bethesda Academy. A special Heritage Reception for upper-level Georgia Trust members will be held at the magnificent Green-Meldrim House (see below for details).


Heritage Reception
Upper-level Georgia Trust members ($250 and up) will enjoy a private reception at the Green-Meldrim House. This impressive home was constructed in the early 1850s and is one of finest examples of Gothic Revival architecture in the South. The home was used as headquarters by General Sherman when the Federal army occupied Savannah during the Civil War. The house has been owned by only two families and St. John's Church. The Meldrim family sold this the home in 1942 to St. John's in order to ensure its preservation. To upgrade your membership to be a part of the Heritage Reception, call the Georgia Trust Donor Relations Manager at 404-885-7805.

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 trips attract hundreds of participants per Ramble and are offered two weekends each year (fall and spring). Recent Rambles have included the Golden Isles, Americus, Cartersville, Milledgeville, LaGrange and Atlanta. Want to see what it's all about? Join us in Savannah, October 6-8!

For more information, contact the Trust’s Special Events Department at 404-885-7812 or

**Times are subject to change. Event occurs rain or shine. Tickets that include meals are non-refundable after September 22.
