Milledgeville Attractions

Beneath the sun-dripped shade of towering oaks, Milledgeville still beckons travelers with impressive architecture, historic venues, a glistening lake and an authentic arboretum. Stroll through our perfectly charming downtown or take a trolley ride!

Amongst the grand Antebellum homes lining the streets of Milledgeville there exists a wealth of cultural opportunities all within walking distance. Follow in Sherman's footsteps at the Old Governor's Mansion. Our rich assortment of historic sites, houses and museums provide visitors with a unique ambiance to learn about Milledgeville's days as the state Capital during a fascinating time of our nation's history.

But there is more to the district than just history. Contemporary student artwork and traditional collections add vibrancy and celebrate history in eclectic galleries such as Leland Gallery and the John Marlor Arts Center. Sites such as Andalusia provided inspiration for one of America's greatest authors, Flannery O'Connor, and served as the setting for many of her stories and characters.
