Celebrate Christmas Past with These Holiday Home Tours
Travel back in time to the Christmases of yesterday at some of Georgia’s holiday home tours. With unique architecture and gorgeous seasonal decorations, these tours should be on your list of things to do this holiday season.
Milledgeville Christmas at the Old Governor's Mansion
Milledgeville was once the capital of Georgia, and each December, the Old Governor’s Mansion transforms for Christmas at the Mansion. Every room is dressed with authentic period decorations, from streamers in the children’s room to poinsettias, holly branches and ribbons in the parlor. For an especially unique experience, candlelight tours are available on select nights. Nov. 20-23 and Nov. 29 - Dec. 22, 2022
Hills & Dales Estate
Celebrate the season at the Hills & Dales Estate in LaGrange. The halls of this Georgian Italian villa are decked with fresh plants, flowers and evergreens. In the living room is a Christmas tree decorated circa 1940s, and a special display adorns the Palm room. Tour the home, and learn to make your own greenery at wreath workshops. Dec. 2 - 30, 2022
At this biannual event, tour beautifully decorated private homes, historic churches, and at least one historic bed and breakfast or historic hotel in St. Marys. Enjoy the self-guided tour and refreshments throughout the evening. Dec. 9, 2023.

Details are still forthcoming, but be sure to save the dates for Dec. 10-11, 2022, for the Grant Park Candlelight Tour of Homes in one of Atlanta's oldest neighborhoods. In addition to touring the homes, guests can enjoy a winter wonderland, artists market, candlelight concert and children's Christmas pageant dress rehearsal.
