I think that this has to be my favorite of all of the antebellum homes I have seen on the Antebellum Trail. This was a house that had families whose sons attended the University of Georgia.....which was why this house was originally built. Gorgeous.

I attended an outdoor wedding reception here. The building is a nice backdrop for an outdoor garden party. I did notice that the facility could benefit from more restrooms.

It has that southern charm you expect and has been farily well kept for decades. I have not been there for a couple years. Most of my experience there was for wedding receptions and it was a very nice place to celebrate.
