We will begin the 2018 tour season with a tour to historic Madison, GA. Sign-in for the tour will be at Chick Fil-A located at 1570 Pleasant Hill Road Duluth, GA starting at 9:00. That is just a few blocks off I-85. Due to the fact that you cannot turn left off Pleasant Hill Rd into their parking lot it is best to turn left on Sweetwater Rd and then immediately turn right into the Chick Fil-A parking lot.

A short participants meeting will be held in the shopping center parking lot behind Chick Fil-A after sign-in is complete, and we will break into multiple groups for the driving tour.

I need volunteer group leaders and sweepers. To volunteer, contact me here.

The first stop will be lunch at the Blue Willow Inn in the historic district of Social Circle. They serve a southern style all you can eat buffet that is sure to please, so don't eat too much breakfast. If we stopped the tour here it would still have been worth the trip! See their web site at bluewillowinn.com.

From there we will drive to Madison where you can visit any of several historic sites, including the Madison Morgan Cultural Center, Heritage Hall, the Steffan Thomas museum of art, the Rogers House and Rose Cottage. If that isn't enough, there are 45 specialty shops and 160 antique dealers to amble through in Madison.

Registration for the tour will be on clubregistration.net and will open Monday 1/29. Registration will close Sunday March 18 at midnight. Cost will be $10 per car for members ($15 per car for non-members) and $28 per person for lunch. Some of the historic sites have small admission fees, but none that will break the bank.
