Heritage Reception

The exterior of the house remains mostly unchanged from the black and white Italian marble entrance hall to the crowning cupola. The interior is restored to reflect the 1880-1916 time period. Striking features include the elaborate wall and ceiling murals in the entrance hall, parlor, and dining room.

What are Rambles?

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.

These trips attract hundreds of participants per Ramble and are offered two weekends each year (fall and spring). Recent Rambles have included Marietta, the Golden Isles, Athens and Americus.

For more information, contact the Trust’s Special Events Department at 404-885-7812 or SpecialEvents@GeorgiaTrust.org.
