The Genealogical Society is located at 71 Macon Street in McDonough, Georgia, about 35 miles southeast of Atlanta off I-75 South.  It is housed in the 1826 home of Andrew McBride, a Revolutionary War Soldier.  The house, which is now known as the Brown House, was once a hotel owned by the Brown family and is among the oldest-surviving buildings in Henry County.  It has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1991.  We are located about two blocks from the Henry County Courthouse and the town square.

The Family Research Library is a non-circulating reference library staffed by volunteers and has available over 2,600 books of genealogical interest.
