We took a small group, and everyone enjoyed the day! It was interesting to see the restoration process and what has been found inside the walls dating back to 1790. The docent did a great job of telling us about Signer George Walton and his family and the history of the house. The grounds are beautifully maintained, too.

The holiday open house was beautiful. It is a different experience to go through at night by candlelight. The docents are friendly and knowledgeable. They had live music, which was a nice touch. I was able to snag a few items in the gift shop that checked some names off my Christmas list. You could even make a corn husk angel ornament. Highly recommend this annual event.

The Christmas Candlelight Open House was super! The tour was so informative, and everyone was so merry! The night was full of Christmas spirit as I saw how the house would have looked when George Walton lived there.

Attended the DAR unveiling of a plaque placed recognizing the project. Amazing to acknowledge the efforts of such an organization to preserve a piece of US history. If you’re in Augusta GA, this is a must see!

The house was beautifully decorated in period decorations for Christmas. The docents were also dressed in period clothing and very knowledgeable about George Walton and the house.

Love this historical home! Learned so much from the docent about George Walton, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence from Georgia. Very interesting renovations completed and in process to improve the historical accuracy of the home. Terrific items in the gift shop as well.
