Elegant Entertaining since 1859


in St yle

Spanning across two centuries, Hay House has represented the best in gracious living and entertaining. The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation has been working to preserve Hay House since 1977, and you too can play a part in its preservation by hosting your rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony and reception or other elegant event here. Escape the ordinary and entertain your guests in the most unique venue in the southeastern United States. Bring them to the “Palace of the South” and provide them the perfect setting for your event. Hay House has also been featured by Hollywood on screen with such films as “The Rose and the Jackal” starring Christopher Reeve, “Mandy and the Forgotten Christmas” and the Lifetime TV show “The Witches of East End”.

One of Georgia’s most historic and distinguished houses, the Johnston-Felton-Hay 934 Georgi a Avenue Macon, Georgia 31201 Hay House Rental & Events Manager


House in Macon was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1974. Built from 1855 to 1859 in the Italian Renaissance Revival style, the building constituted a marked contrast to the more restrained Greek Revival architecture of the antebellum period. The 18,000-square-foot mansion spans four levels and is crowned by a three-story cupola. Commissioned by imaginative owners and constructed by the most skillful workers of the time, its technological amenities were unsurpassed in the mid-19th century: hot and cold running water, central heat, a speaker-tube system, in-house kitchen, and an elaborate ventilation system. Hay House is constantly undergoing restoration, while remaining open to the public. In addition to regular tours and special events, Hay House is also available for event rental, including weddings, receptions, banquets and other occasions.
