Tour grand historic homes and sites in Augusta.

Due to the regional and national increases in COVID-19, the Trust has made the difficult decision to postpone our winter and spring events, including the Spring Ramble. We are sorry for these inconveniences. We will update you with new dates and details in the coming weeks. We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding and thank you for your continued support.


The 2020 Spring Ramble in Augusta has been postponed to Spring 2021.

If you registered for the 2020 Spring Ramble, you will be given an option to do one of the following:

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

Your Ramble registration will automatically be transferred to the 2021 Spring Ramble, 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

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 2021.

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

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.
