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.

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 16-18, 2021.
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.
