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
