Madison, Georgia, known as one of the most beautiful cities between Charleston, South Carolina and New Orleans, Louisiana, was spared by General William T. Sherman when he burned much of Georgia on his route to Savannah during the Civil War.
December 5 and December 6, the Morgan County, Georgia, Historical Sociery will present a "Holiday Tour of Historic Ante-bellum Homes" in Madison complete with Christmas indoor and outdoor decorations. This is always a beautiful event! If there is enough local interest, the library will schedule a trip to Madison on one of the two dates.
The tour of homes will begin at 5:00 p.m and conclude about 9:00 p.m. We will leave the Bradshaw Library parking lot at about 1:00 p.m., travel to Madison, rest up a bit and then take the tour. Afterwards, we will leave Madison at 9:00 p.m. and return to the library about midnight.
Cost for the trip will be approximately $35 and will include transportation and tickets for the tour. Participants may take their own food but numerous restaurants in the tour area will be open.
Please indicate your interest in taking the trip by signing up at the main desk of the Bradshaw Library. THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT WE WILL DEFINITELY TAKE THE TRIP NOR DOES IT MEAN THAT ANYONE HAS A PLACE RESERVED. IF ENOUGH INTEREST IS SHOWN, WE WILL ANNOUNCE IT IN THE LOCAL PAPER AND ON THE LIBRARY BLOG.
THE $35 FEE IS AN ESTIMATE. IT MAY BE SLIGHTLY MORE OR SLIGHTLY LESS.
