Expedition Itinerary at a Glance
What is an Expedition?
A Georgia Trust Expedition invites members and guests to explore a Georgia town located off the beaten path. These day-long, self guided tours are designed to reflect a town’s unique history and development by including a variety of historic sites, from vernacular homesteads to historic industrial sites to grand homes, as well as historic landscapes and natural features. Expeditions educate participants about Georgia’s small town heritage while celebrating ongoing preservation and revitalization efforts.
Tours are self-guided, and guests provide their own transportation. Maps and programs are provided at packet pick-up.
