“Milledgeville is rich in history, and not a lot of people take the time to really appreciate it or learn more about it,” said Bailey. “The great thing about the tour is that it points out interesting facts about our community that some until this day may not know about.”
Among the local stops is the Old Governor’s Mansion.
The final two stops on the Trail brings visitors to Gray and Old Clinton and ending in Macon. Visitors can experience life on an 1850s cotton plantation as they walk the grounds of the Jarrell Plantation State Historic Site then travel to Macon to view the Hay House and the Cannonball House, majestic palaces of the south.
