    We toured the Old Governors' Mansion during a recent trip to Milledgeville. The tour was fabulous! The young man who led our tour was extremely knowledgeable about Georgia history and the mansion. He took time to answer every question thoroughly. The mansion has been meticulously restored and is just magnificent. This tour is well worth it for an enjoyable hour in Milledgeville!

    Central State could be a beautiful place again!!!! People would love to tour around eat in the grounds even a bar there with tv’s and outside dining would be great it’s beautiful out there and so much history I wish someone would save the power plant and the beautiful buildings that can never be replaced

    We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Andalusia. Our tour guide, (I believe her name was Grace), was very knowledgeable about Ms. O’Connor. We enjoyed the birds, the barn, and the grounds. We plan to go back again to see the renovation projects planned for the property.

    We visited the Information Center to gather information about the area. The woman working there was so kind and helpful. We gathered maps and all sorts of brochures. Can’t wait to come back and do the trolley tour!

    There's been a lot of work done on the building. Antiques on top floor and reclaimed wood below. Found a lot of good items. Going back soon

    The Lockerly Arboretum is a paradise of wild nature and beautiful trees in the heart of Milledgeville, and the arboreal beauty is a treat in and of itself. In my opinion, however, the greatest draw is the incredible antebellum home at the Arboretum's heart, Rose Hall. Gorgeously decorated with period furniture and a very well-written self-guided tour, Rose Hall is a historic draw in the midst of natural loveliness.

    Georgia's Old Capitol Building in Milledgeville is more than 200 years old, the oldest public building of its type in the United States. Georgia's original state capitol was in Louisville. But on December 12, 1804, the state legislature voted to designate Milledgeville as the capital of Georgia. The highest point in the city was reserved for Statehouse Square, where construction of the new capitol building began in 1805. It required 1,377,266 bricks, 65,000 shingles, 44 windows and 200 feet of window glass to complete. Although it wasn't yet complete, the legislature met there for the first time in 1807. The Marquis de Lafayette, the French hero of the American Revolution, visited the building in 1825. Significant expansions were added with north and south wings built in 1828 and 1834. The east and west porticos with their granite steps were added in 1835, completing the building to the appearance it maintains today. In 1961, it hosted the state's Secession Convention and it was here that the delegates voted to secede from the Union. Later, the Old Capitol Building survived one night's occupation by General William T. Sherman's army in 1864 and two fires. The Reconstruction legislature voted to move the capitol to Atlanta in 1868. Used as a courthouse of Baldwin County from 1871 to 1879, it became Georgia Military College in 1900 and remains a thriving educational institution. Located at 201 East Greene Street, the Old Capital Museum is open to the public from 10 to 4 Tuesday through Friday and noon to 4 on Saturday. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1970.

    Upon reading of the history and purpose of the steel markers bearing only numbers I was horrified to learn that these were only a small number from the originals. They represented each patient that died while in State Custody for mental health needs.Many years ago the grounds keepers removed them as it made it easier to CUT GRASS. They were discarded and laid for years as they continued to rust. These patients just as their markers have been lost to history and ignorance! God Forgive Us and our State Leaders!

    Beautiful! See it on the Trolley Tour! The trolley tour stops here and riders get to go inside on certain days. With a guide to describe the church answer questions, it is the best way to visit this church.

    My family camped here - very clean, lots of boat slips. They have a playground, some cabins, a little beach, a store and an ice maker. Very well maintained campground. the only bummer is that all the lakefront spots belong to permanent residents, which I get. They are guaranteed money, but it would have been nice to have one for the weekend! we went out on the lake and caught over 20+ small fish. They also have fishing tournaments almost every weekend which was fun to see in person.

    A small exhibit in the library which will mean more to fans than other tourists but interesting none the less.

    The is THE BEST way to tour the city. It goes to places and allows you access to interiors that are not available otherwise. It goes to sites that you can not walk to. And with a tour guide to describe things and answer questions this is great! For the price, it can't be beat! As a side note: A number of Antebellum Houses in Milledgeville are not in that great of shape, especially compared to Madison and they are not as walk-able. Do your self a favor and take the Trolley Tour. PS It is AIR CONDITIONED, too.

    We had two days of Flyboarding experiences and both were great! Six grandchildren, one friend and a daughter took part in the rides and had a wonderful time. We loved watching them.
