Augusta, Georgia

Our drive to Georgia’s Antebellum Trail really begins with a visit and a night’s stay in Augusta. This is Georgia’s second largest city.  Some views of our exploration of our early afternoon arrival here. First is a lovely fountain just outside a chain Marriott hotel, which we decided against for a local inn in the historic Olde Town area.

Baptist Church

This was a pleasant surprise and for the life of me, I just couldn’t find the name of this beautiful church. Unfortunately, it was closed for renovations. The small cemetery is well maintained and slight creepy.

Boyhood Home of Woodrow Wilson (circa 1859)

Woodys home

Boyhood Home of Woodrow Wilson

We just caught the last tour of the day for the Boyhood home of President Woodrow Wilson. It is must see for history explorers and anyone who is interested in former presidential homes. I must say the image of the looming apartment complex makes one wonder how long this lovely home will stand over the years?

We stayed in Olde Town at the Olde Town Inn  This is highly recommended for its ease of walking and bar within the building known as the Fox’s Lair.

Live music at night. During our stay a band from Asheville, NC called “The LazyBirds” played.  Listen to their great song by clicking below
