Stained-glass windows and wrought-iron balconies mark the terra-cotta exterior of the Fitzpatrick, which faces Courthouse Square in historical downtown Washington, Georgia. Originally constructed in 1898 and restored in 2004, the three-story hotel has 17 guest rooms with ornate Victorian period furnishings throughout, including gentleman's chairs, upholstered ottomans, antique claw-foot tubs, and vases wearing corsets. Some guest rooms even have fireplaces. Each morning, the innkeepers lay out a complimentary continental breakfast spread of fruits, cereals, breads, coffee, and tea.

You can tour the homes, barns, outbuildings, and the cemetery on its 3,000-acre cotton plantation, featuring an unaltered Great Manor house, a Greek Revival?style mansion furnished with 150-year-old doors.
Armed with an army of innovative and certified shutterbugs, Olan Mills Portrait Studio provides families with high-quality portraits, continuing a mission that was established more than 75 years ago by founder Olan Mills Sr. Skilled in the art of capturing infants, children, families, and bunny-ears-giving ghost orbs on film, Olan Mills’s experienced smile snappers will take a series of poses amid a variety of backgrounds and lighting options. The studio is equipped with a selection of props—including numbers for birthdays, toys, and boxes—and patrons may bring their own photo-enlivening items from home.
