What's the most grandiose or luxurious plantation/mansion one can visit in Atlanta or the Georgia area?
About 75 miles northwest is Rome, and there sits Oak Hill and the Martha Berry Museum. It's a beautiful old plantation house, but what was the plantation is now Berry College. Because of this, much of the history is focused on the school and its founder, Martha Berry (this is her childhood home and family estate). Still, there are guided tours in the house and gardens, and you can drive around the Berry campus as well (it feels more like a state park than a college campus). Hope this helps, and happy travels! about 6 years ago
