Macon, Georgia: Quaint and Historic Town in Central Georgia
Macon was founded in 1806 as Fort Benjamin Hawkins, and was a major stronghold for the Confederates in the Civil War. Unlike some other Confederate strongholds, though, many Macon buildings were spared during General Sherman’s Civil War-era march to the sea—Macon has more than 6,000 historic structures on the National Register of Historic Places. One such building is the Hay House, an Italian Renaissance Revival-style villa erected in 1859. Take a one-hour guided tour to learn more about the three prominent Georgian families who called the estate home over the years. Macon is also home to the first college in the world chartered to grant degrees to women: Wesleyan College.
