Madison, GA

Christmas Tour of Homes

 

December 2 and 3

 

Day Tour 10-4

Candlelight Tour 5-9

 

Tour Headquarters is Heritage Hall, South Main Street, Madison

 

One of the best ways to get in the holiday spirit is the annual Christmas Tour of Homes in historic Madison, Georgia, where you'll find the largest collection of 19th century architecture in the state.

 

While you're in town, don't miss the distinctive shops and restaurants - Madison's vibrant downtown will take you back to a time when Main Streets all across America were the heart of community life.

 

More than a dozen private homes will be on tour this year, all decked out in their holiday best. Homes on tour include:

 

Bonar Hall Madison GABonar Hall, circa 1832. Constructed in the four over four Georgia style, the structure has 20x20ft main rooms with 13ft ceilings, and 18 inch thick walls. The interior of Bonar Hall is marked by massive doors with silver doorknobs and Victorian-era stenciled ceilings in the double parlor.

 

Thurleston Madison GAThurleston, circa 1818. Originally a Piedmont Plain farmhouse on land in the county situated between Indian Creek and Little River, the home was disassembled and moved by mule and log in 1841, and reconstructed in its present site for use as a townhouse. Today it sits on 35 acres in the historic district, with beautiful gardens.

 

Barrow AcademyBarrow Academy, circa 1840. Architecturally a New Orleans style home, rarely seen in middle Georgia, the home was designed with a sunken basement to provide relief from the hot summer months. In the 1850's the building housed a school for boys run by C B Barrow, who was also editor of the Georgia Weekly Visitor.
