This is a huge house in Macon with several unique features including many high arched doorways, an original elevator, pocket doors including one set on a curve and lovely, expensive chandeliers. At present, it is decorated for the holidays. Built in the middle of the...More
This is a southern palace. Its not your ordinary pre civil war house. The history is unique about the owners. The architecture will absolutely blow you away. Stained glass everywhere. Spectular doors and ceilings like you've never seen. Don't miss this gem of the south....More
Attended a wedding here. Place was just beautiful! Knowing the craftsmanship required to hand cut the woodwork, painted ceilings, plaster work, chandeliers, etc., is breathtaking! Also had artwork on walls and pedestals.
Grateful they had a generator pushing in a/c or would've been dreadfully hot....More
A very impressive residence, and certainly worth a visit to see how "the other half" lived back in the day. It's obvious that a huge amount of thought went into the design and decoration of the house, and the knowledgeable guides who show you around...More
Our tour guide, Jeremy, brought the life and history of this building to life. He is very knowledgeable and an asset to the Georgia State Trust. The upstairs part of the building is undergoing a lot of renovation so we only got to visit three...More

What a grand mansion. A real one. Beautiful rooms, amazing history! We were not able to purchase tickets to go up in the cupola where we could see the city at this time, maybe next time. The top floor was under reconstruction, a very delicate...More
Stunning craftsmanship and creativity greet you as you approach the front door. The wood carvings, elaborate banisters and beautiful doors truly set this home apart from other classical homes. Some may or may not like the Foe Painting that adorns the walls of the Hay...More
My husband and I are seeing first hand some of the old south. The Hay House is a treasure trove of history and endurance in a time when people move away from large antebellum homes. We realized the property was undergoing some renovation and upkeep...More

Our regular guided tour covers the first three floors of the house. The tour itself generally takes about 45 minutes to one hour. We also offer our Top of the House tour on a daily basis. This tour is optional and costs an additional $4.00 per person and provides our guests with a tour of the upper most levels of the house with a trip to the cupola and widows walk on the 7th floor. In addition, the basement level is self guided with the purchase of a tour ticket, which you may browse at your leisure prior to or after the tour.
We offer the Top in the House tour as an addition to the regular tour because there are many steps in the house and some guests do not have enough time or are not physically able to walk the stairs to the top. We do have a small elevator that goes from the first floor to the third floor and the house is handicap accessible through our gift shop entrance at the rear of the building.
If you have any further questions please feel free to call Hay House at 478-742-8155.
Our prices (not including tax) are $11.00 for adults, $10.00 for seniors/military, $7.00 for students and any children 6 years old or younger are free of charge. We are open Monday through Saturday from 10:00 am to 4:00pm and Sundays from 1:00 to 4:00 pm with the last tour beginning at 3:00 pm.
