Pack your bags and get ready for the 2010 Annual Meeting and Spring Ramble in Rome, Georgia!
Your adventure begins this Friday, April 9th at the handsomely restored Hawthorn Suites in downtown Rome where you will receive your registration packet and have the opportunity to view the ground floor of this fabulous restoration. Friday's Ramble will include many sites on Broad Street including the Rome Area History Museum and the newly renovated and restored Masonic Lodge. Friday evening, the 2010 Preservation Awards will be held at the historic DeSoto Theatre followed by dinner at a Georgia Trust Preservation Award winning site, Forrest Place.
Saturday will begin with breakfast and orientation at the Rome City Auditorium with a special presentation on the city's history by local history buff and avid volunteer, Anne Culpepper. Saturday's Ramble will feature the Between the Rivers Historic District as well as the site of Rome's naming, the Home on the Hill at Darlington School. Saturday dinner will be an authentic pig roast at Colonial Heights where Ramblers will have the opportunity to explore the home and the historic graveyard where it is said that the last casualty of the Civil Way is buried.
On Sunday, we will travel to Berry College to explore Martha Berry's life work. Sites will include Oak Hill, Frost Chapel, Barnwell Chapel, and the Ford Buildings. Brunch will be served at the Spruill Ballroom.
