Capitals, Columns & Collections...Milledgeville's Museum District. Walk beneath the shadows of towering oaks through wrought iron gates that lead to magnificently preserved mansions, haunted historic sites and fascinating museums. The intriguing true-life tales and ghostly legends echoing in these halls are even more intricate and elaborate than the delicate scrollwork on the fences that have helped safeguard hidden treasures in the Antebellum Capital of Georgia

For centuries, Milledgeville's beautiful natural setting has inspired local artists. Contemporary student artwork and traditional collections add vibrancy and celebrate history in eclectic galleries. 

Over 50 acres are planted and protected to showcase the wonderful art of nature through heirloom flora and regional foliage.
