This fall, experience the rich history and southern hospitality of beautiful Macon, Georgia.

From Shirley Hills to downtown, local preservation efforts have led to Macon’s rebirth. Ramblers will have the opportunity to tour historic private homes and sites in Macon’s most beautiful neighborhoods including Shirley Hills, Vineville, Intown, Downtown, and the revitalized Beall’s Hill neighborhood, a Victorian-era neighborhood that features many architecturally significant homes.

This year’s Fall Ramble will have a limited number of tickets available. September 24 is the deadline to purchase tickets that include meals (if not already sold out).

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
