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.

Augusta, The Book
Augusta is a 50th anniversary project of Historic Augusta, Inc. written by Dr. James W. Garvey and Dr. Lee Ann Caldwell, with photography by James R. Lockhart. Richly illustrated with archival images and current views professionally photographed, this beautiful book provides an overview of Augusta’s history through its architecture from the eighteenth to the late twentieth centuries. Proceeds benefit Historic Augusta, Inc. and The Georgia Trust.
Shipping is not available for this book. Buyers must be able to pick up the book in Augusta at packet pick-up during The Georgia Trust Spring Ramble, April 17-19, 2020.
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.
