Historic District

  • 200 West Hancock Street
    Milledgeville, GA 31061



Founded in 1803 around a series of beautiful squares and wide streets, Milledgeville was designed to be a capital city. For more than 60 years, she remained the capital. Many area homes and structures survived the periodic fires and willful destruction of the War Between the States. A ride around the downtown historic district brings you past beautiful the beautiful antebellum homes and landmarks of Clarke Street, Liberty Street, and Greene Street…just to name a few. A ride down Hancock Street will take you by the 125 year old, historic Georgia College & State University…the alma mater of writer Flannery O’Connor! Just east of the campus is historic downtown Milledgeville with its old-timey campus theatre, traditional architecture, and well-preserved history.
