Celebrate your roots with First Friday

MILLEDGEVILLE — The city of Milledgeville is rich in historical gold from its beautifully preserved buildings, such as the Old Governor's Mansion, to the immense history of its residents. To help celebrate the community's diverse history, Milledgeville Mainstreet's First Friday will feature a collection of events that will provide a glimpse into the roots of Baldwin County.   

Free trolley tours will be available, taking visitors to four local museums in Milledgeville. The trolley will leave downtown Milledgeville and head to Georgia's Old Capital Museum, the Old Governor's Mansion, the Sallie Ellis Davis Cultural Arts Center and Allen's Market. The trolley will run from 6 to 9 p.m. The last museum tour begins at 8:30 p.m.

Visitors will also have a chance to view historic photos of the city at Digital Bridges. Georgia College Special Collections will be at Digital Bridges showcasing and collecting historical photos of the city. 

"Everyone is encouraged to bring their own photos and personal stories of Milledgeville," said Milledgeville Main Street Director Carlee Schulte.  

Special Collections will be collecting historical Milledgeville pictures from visitors, scanning their old photographs as well as recording oral history interviews. They are looking for 20th century images, but will accept any images brought in.

"Georgia College Special Collections is proud to partner with Digital Bridges for the March First Friday in downtown Milledgeville,” Special Collections staff member Gordon Thomas said. The oral history interviews will become part of the Milledgeville Baldwin County Oral History Project. 

Local dancers and the Salsa Club from Georgia College will be dancing in front of J.C. Grant Company to oldies music. Various styles of dance will be featured to show interested dancers what they could learn in an upcoming dance class. Classes are offered through the Department of Continuing Education.
