Missed the trolley tour? Try something new! Getting your daily 10,000 steps and a lesson in history through Milledgeville’s Historic Walking Tour has never been easier. Whether you’re a longtime local or just passing through Milledgeville for the day, we encourage you to grab a map and your most comfortable shoes for a 3.55 mile walk through town!

The walking tour begins in our office, the Milledgeville-Baldwin County Convention Center and Visitors Bureau. We’ll give you a tour map to bring along for the walk that includes historical information about each site. You’ll pass through 44 historic sites, 12 of which are open to the general public. Most of these residences are private, however, so remember to be quiet and respectful!
