Ideal Tour for Family Outing
Jun 2021
My husband and I took our grandsons, ages 7 and 10, to tour Meadow Garden. The tour guide did an excellent job relating to our our group plus two other ladies. She even plans to use a joke the boys told her on MG’s social media page. I have visited this house several times and always learn something new. Their historic restoration efforts are particularly interesting.

Meadow Garden is a House Full of American History
May 2021
I love to visit historic homes and have been to many big beautiful old homes but this may be one of the oldest home I have ever visited. This house goes back to our country's beginnings and while it isn't one of those big beautiful old southern homes, it has a special significance of belonging to a signer of the Declaration of Independence. It is currently being restored by professionals who know what they are doing. When we arrived we were greeted by a smiling young lady who introduced herself and welcomed us. She was extremely knowledgeable and told us not only about the history of the house but what is going on with the restoration. She did not rush us through the tour but seemed to be enjoying the visit along with us. She explained the changes in the house over the years and how the current restoration is an effort to restore it to the way it looked when George Walton lived in the house. As we went through the rooms she told us about things they had found when portions of walls, roof, etc. Some areas when unavailable because they are actively under restoration. Our Docent answered all our questions, no matter how silly or complicated they were. It is a real pleasure to have a tour when you can see that the person giving that tour genuinely loves her job and appreciates the history and significance to the building. The history of this house is the history of us and our country. Even if you are just curious about what the inside of an old house looks like, you will still enjoy this tour. We thoroughly enjoyed Meadow Garden and plan to come back again the restoration has been completed. If you have a hour or two to spare this is a great place to visit.

Historic Meadow Garden - you don't want to miss it!
May 2021
Our visit to Meadow Garden this month was outstanding! Our group of six ladies were warmly greeted by Meadow Garden Director, Stephani Roohani. She is so knowledgeable about the history of Meadow Garden and presents it in such an interesting manner. The grounds are beautiful, and the home is a treasure to be shared with all who visit. I highly recommend a Meadow Garden visit to anyone interested in Georgia's, and our nation's history.

Such a historic wonder!!
Jun 2020
Meadow Garden is a wonderful trip for any visitor to, or resident of, the CSRA. The renovation is wonderful to follow and the gift shop is a lot of fun. The docents are very informed and show everything. Lunch in nearby downtown Augusta is a treat.

I was impressed by the knowledge of the docents during the tour. The restoration of the property is impressive. The detail to period furniture and furnishings make it "a step back in time".

Historic Treasure in Augusta, Georgia
Mar 2021 • Couples
No trip to Augusta is complete without a visit to Meadow Garden, the historic home of George Walton, a Georgia Signer of the Declaration of Independence. This beautiful house and property have been lovingly restored and maintained by the Georgia Society, Daughters of the American Revolution for many years.

Each time I visit, I spy new treasures, learn interesting facts about George Walton and Colonial America, and enjoy the serene beauty of the home and its gardens.

It is especially fun to be in a tour group that includes young adults and children! I am always impressed by their curiosity and the depth and quality of the questions they ask.

Exciting Look into the Past!
Jul 2020
It is amazing to be able to walk into a house from the 1700s that still stands and is in good shape. The kitchen under the house was probably my favorite part of the tour. I am proud of the fact that the Georgia Daughters of the American Revolution have preserved this piece of history for all of us. I would recommend visiting this museum to all, adults and children will enjoy it. My friend and I loved it and enjoyed the gift shop too!!
