Georgia’s Antebellum Trail

By Linda Tancs

What comes to mind when you think of an antebellum home?  Perhaps it’s something stately, with massive white columns introducing the frame.  That type of architecture is quite characteristic of the antebellum period–that is, the period predating America’s Civil War.   It’s a view of the Old South etched into a traveler’s mind.  Fortunately for Georgia, enough of it remains, despite Union General William Tecumseh Sherman’s destructive march through the state during the war.  He managed to spare a 100-mile trek from Macon to Athens.  Including the towns of Old Clinton, Gray, Milledgeville, Eatonton, Madison and Watkinsville, the Antebellum Trail offers stately mansions, a glimpse of frontier living, romantic covered bridges and so much more.  Seven welcome centers along the way will guide you through this part of the Old South’s rich history and charms.
