The city of Augusta is home to some of the most beautifully preserved historical homes and buildings in Georgia. For those who enjoy history, this is definitely a place to add to your list of things to see. Whether you live nearby or are finding a travel destination, schedule a day to enjoy the historic sites of the second oldest city in Georgia.
Church of the Most Holy Trinity – Dating back to the 1800s, the Church of the Most Holy Trinity is a gorgeous historic landmark in Augusta. The building itself is beautiful, but the inside of the church is stunning. The massive Jardine organ will take your breath away. Installed in 1863 and restored in 1994, it is the largest existing 19th century organ in the south.
Wilson House – The childhood home of President Woodrow Wilson is a great place to visit to take yourself back to a different time. Acquired by Historic Augusta, Inc. in 1991, it was restored to a museum of sorts, showcasing items that would have been present in a home of the time. You can purchase tickets for a tour.
Walking Tours – The self-guided walking tour of historic Augusta is a great way to see much of the historic architecture in one afternoon. Organized by three key streets – Greene Street, Telfair Street and Broad Street – you can print off info on all or just a few of the historical places you would like to see. The tour will give you information on the historical sites, as well as more recent constructions.
