This stop was part of the Milledgeville Trolley Tour--it wasn't on our must-do list to start, but turned out to be one of our favorite places on the Antebellum Trail. Highly recommend!

Well, there are paths to walk, and signs on some of the trees, and some displays, like an ancient, weathered display of fossilized shark teeth. But there was not a lot there when we arrived in mid-March. We did not tour the house, and that...More

Beautiful place to visit. Lovely plants, trees, and flowers. Field trip friendly for school groups. Visited in the spring and learned a lot about pine tree pollen!

We visited Rose Hill Mansion today. It was one of the most impressive houses that we toured on the Antebellum Trail. Tour is self guided and very reasonably priced. Also beautiful trails to walk through the Arboretum. This is a "must see" when in Milledgeville.

we did not attend a wedding at the Lockerly House but there was one setting up the day we visited. Furnishing is not original and the signage is not very good. No docent available. We did not visit the Arboretum.

This is an EXCELLENT spot for getting out and stretching your legs. The lawn and property is well-maintained and has plenty of walking trails. You can also stroll through the two greenhouses near the front of the property (near the parking area). If you are...More
