While you’re visiting Milledgeville, a must see is Andalusia farm. Flannery O’Connor lived on the farm from 1951-1964, and sat on the same porch that is open to visitors now. The Andalusia farm porch overlooks rolling acres, where peacocks, deer, wild turkey, red-tail hawks, beaver, raccoons, foxes and other aquatic beings reside. The farm sits on 544 acres and is a great place to visit with family and friends. The Andalusia farm porch is a great place to make memories and learn about Flanner O’Connor’s lifestyle and to see where she gained the inspiration that makes up her writing.

The front porches on Georgia College’s campus:
On Georgia College’s campus, there are four main buildings that defy front campus. Bell Hall, the honors dormitory for the school, Terrell Hall, the foreign language and communication building, Atkinson Hall, the business school, and Parks Hall, the Administrative building, are all homes to some of the hottest spots on campus: the porches. Each is adorned with rocking chairs, porch swings and stools that are unique to each building. Over the years, each porch has undergone transformation as well, with the most recent being Terrell Hall. The porch of Terrell was reconstructed to stop it from sinking, as well as painted and redecorated in order to make it more appealing.
On any given day, faculty and students can be seen rocking on the porches, or even hosting parties! It’s a common occurrence to see large groups of people on each porch. To schedule a tour of Georgia College, please contact the information that is provided below!
