Several of our residents experienced a special treat recently when they toured the Georgia Governor’s Mansion in Buckhead. First Lady Sandra Deal was waiting at the front door to greet visitors as they embarked on a tour of the residence, which was festively decorated for the holiday season.

Twenty St. Georgia Villagers recently hopped on the bus for a drive up to Rome, Ga. and a visit to Oak Hill and The Martha Berry Museum at Berry College. Oak Hill is the historic Greek Revival home and estate of Berry College founder Martha Berry. The Martha Berry Museum houses a permanent exhibition that traces the evolution of the Berry Schools into Berry College.
The group received a tour of the home (which has been featured in movies such as Sweet Home Alabama and Remember the Titans), led by Berry College students, and visited the Museum, Aunt Martha’s Cottage (the former home of Martha Berry’s servant who became caretaker of the estate), and the estate’s gardens.
No one went hungry on this trip! The first stop was lunch at the Harvest Moon Café and the adjacent HoneyMoon Bakery in downtown Rome.
