Historic buildings maintain our connection to the past, forging an even more potent bond with bygone days than leaving the Christmas tree up through September.

The Historic Macon Foundation strives to preserve and protect the rich architectural heritage of Macon, which features 12 historical districts that evoke Georgian revival, Queen Anne, Victorian, and several other architectural styles. The foundation’s centerpiece, the 1840s-era Sidney Lanier Cottage House Museum, was once home to noted poet and musician Sidney Lanier and now hosts a fascinating collection of historical objects and poems that Lanier’s ghost confusedly carved on computer monitors within the cottage's beautifully restored interior. The doors are open to unlimited visits from members, who are also invited to an array of cultural events and the foundation's annual meeting. The Historic Times newsletter keeps supporters abreast of the vital local preservation efforts their memberships help to fund.
