Masks will be required prior to entry to all private residences. For all public sites, please follow the guidance put in place by each individual site.

Ramble Tips

  • Please wear your name badge throughout the weekend. This serves as your entry into all Ramble sites and meal venues.
  • SCRAMBLE YOUR RAMBLE – to control crowding, we encourage attendees to not follow the numbered order in the program.
  • If you have registered for tickets with meals, you’ll find a voucher in your packet that can be used at participating restaurants. This voucher serves as $10 cash and does not include gratuity.
  • Street parking is available throughout the weekend. Please be mindful that some parking lots do require payment.
  • Parking for Friday’s dinner is available at Springfield Baptist Church (very limited parking lot) or in the parking deck in the Nathan Deal Campus Parking lot located at 9 Eleventh Street, Augusta for $1.25 per hour or $7 all day. Credit card only.
  • If attending Saturday’s dinner at Salubrity Hall, street parking is available. Complimentary parking is also available at Site #41, nearby Reid Memorial Presbyterian Church (2661 Walton Way), located 0.1 miles away. There is NO on-site parking available.
  • Sunday’s Ramble will be held in nearby Thomson, Georgia. Breakfast will be in Augusta, so please plan to travel approximately 40 minutes to Thomson. Thomson is located along I-20 West towards Atlanta.
  • If you are registered for Sunday Tour Only, do not pick up your Ramble packet in Augusta. Please pick up your packet between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. at Hickory Hill (502 Hickory Hill Road, Thomson).
  • Self parking will not be available at Hickory Hill during Sunday’s Ramble. Hickory Hill is generously providing complimentary valet parking for all visitors, due to very limited on-site parking.

Heritage Reception

During the Spring Ramble weekend, upper-level Georgia Trust members ($250 and up) will enjoy a complimentary private reception at the Salubrity Hall Tea House. Designed by the Augusta firm of Scroggs and Ewing in 1928, this English Tudor style tea house was originally designed as a place for entertainment for Salubrity Hall’s owner. The tea house was originally accessed by a garden wilderness walk meandering from the main house and is surrounded by stately oak trees and colorful azaleas. The beautiful garden estate was featured in Garden History of Georgia, 1733-1933.

Guests will enjoy a rare opportunity to explore this historic gem while partaking in cocktails and light hors d’oeuvres. Following the Heritage Reception, registered Ramblers will have a delicious dinner on the picturesque grounds of Salubrity Hall.

To upgrade your membership to be a part of this exclusive event, please contact 404-885-7818 or membership@georgiatrust.org.

If you are vaccinated and have not yet sent in your proof of vaccination, please do one of the following options:

  1. Email a copy of your Vaccine Card or Vaccine Record to specialevents@georgiatrust.org (preferred method due to postal delivery being unreliable), or

  2. The test must be taken at least 72 hours of attending the Spring Ramble.

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.

**Sites and times are subject to change. Event occurs rain or shine.
