POSTPONED TO APRIL 16-18, 2021

Out of concern for the safety, health, and well-being of participants and staff, the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation and Historic Augusta, Inc., by mutual agreement, have made the decision to postpone the 2020 Spring Ramble in Augusta to April 16-18 2021. If you made hotel reservations for the 2020 Spring Ramble, we encourage you to cancel them as soon as possible.

Registrants will be given an option to do one of the following:

  • Carry forward their Ramble registration until Spring 2021
  • Receive a refund
  • Or give their registration as a tax-deductible donation to the Trust

Your Ramble registration will automatically be transferred to the 2021 Spring Ramble on April 16-18, unless we hear from you. Please let us know if you would like to receive a refund or use your registration as a tax-deductible donation by contacting Brittany Darlington at bdarlington@georgiatrust.org. We appreciate your understanding that this process takes time as we are in the middle of contacting homeowners, vendors, meal venues, caterers and other parties involved in this event.

The Georgia Trust Preservation Awards, scheduled for April 17, 2020 in Augusta, has also been postponed. We will notify everyone once a new date is set.

The Georgia Trust would like to express its appreciation to Historic Augusta, Inc. and to our local chairs, Paula and Larry Knox, and the local planning committee, for their hard work in planning this Ramble and for their wisdom and cooperation in arranging for the Ramble to be rescheduled for next year.

We greatly appreciate your understanding and thank you for your continued support during this time.

Heritage Reception

Upper-level Georgia Trust members ($250 and up) will enjoy an exclusive reception at Green Court, a magnificent home whose provenance includes some of Augusta’s most interesting citizens. Guests will get a rare glimpse inside this architectural gem while enjoying cocktails and light hors d’ouerves. The impressive 1820s Federal style home has grown in size and ornamentation with its successive owners and is located in the stately hilltop neighborhood of Summerville, historically home to the city’s most influential residents. The romantic trellis-work piazzas were added in 1854, moving the home toward a Gothic Revival style. The private residence features handsome millwork, a stunning spiral staircase, double parlors and beautiful formal gardens that lend to its verdant name.

To upgrade your membership to be a part of this event, please contact the Georgia Trust Donor Relations Manager at 404-885-7805 or email membership@georgiatrust.org.

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.
