I always love visiting the Hay House in Macon Ga. when I’m in Macon I try my hardest to reach as many historical places as possible but none compare to the house on the hill.

My husband and I married at The Johnson-Felton-Hay House in April 1982. Since then, the house has been returned to its original splendor. It truly is The Palace of the South. Well worth stopping to take the tour! We never tire of going back again...More

Went early before it got hot. What a lovely pre Civil War southern house! So many tech features before their time, like flush toilets, painted illusions, and whole house ventilation. Lovely art work and ceiling decorations. A must-see!

I found the architectural details of this house utterly fascinating. Our tour guide knew everything, had an excellent pace, and was very friendly. We saw a great deal of the first two floors of the house. Sadly, the top of the house tour wasn't running...More

Michael is correct. The tours are hourly. There is a $4 extra charge to see the upper levels or $20 at certain times for the "behind the scenes" tour. All very worth it.
