Spring Stroll

26th Annual Spring Stroll of Macon Houses and Gardens

May 3 – 5, 2019

Enchanting gardens and historic home interiors await your discovery during this year’s Spring Stroll of Macon Houses and Gardens, which will feature houses and gardens in the National Register neighborhoods of Shirley Hills and North Highlands.

North Highlands

Development of North Highlands began in 1898 on former plantation lands, and its streets abound in houses of various styles including Shingle, Queen Anne, Tudor Revival and Craftsman.

Shirley Hills

Shirley Hills was developed in 1922 according to a master plan, on acreage carved from the estate of U.S. Senator A.O. Bacon. Shirley Hills boasts houses in the Colonial Revival, Neoclassical Revival and even Mid-century Modernist styles, including several works of one of Georgia’s first female architects, Ellamae Ellis League.


Lectures on gardening, cuisine, and historic interiors will precede the tours on Friday. The Garden Market will once again be in operation around Hay House on Friday and through the weekend.
