Martha Berry is the founder of Berry College, which occupies 170 acres and has spectacular Greek Revival houses, gardens, museums and walkways. Martha Berry’s home is in Oak Hill, the same as it was before her death in 1942. The cab of the classic car and Aunt Martha’s cabin (home of Berry’s beloved chef and housekeeper Martha Freeman) complete the house. The formal gardens and nature trails are stunning masterpieces and include one of the few national gardens in the United States.
The Martha Berry Museum displays an incredible art collection, as well as exhibits on the life of Martha Berry and Martha Berry memorabilia. This attraction is suitable for all ages. Tickets: $ 8 for adults, $ 7 for AAA members and seniors, and $ 5 for students. This trip will be led by students from Berry College. Oak Hill is open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 5pm.
The museum is open from 10:00 to 15:00 and activities such as treasure hunts on nature trails will be the highlight of this year’s Museum Day theme, “Global Optimism”. The Oak Hill House Historical Tour takes place at 12pm and 1pm.
