Oak Hill, Martha Berry Museum

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by willow on November 18, 2000

This beautifully-preserved 170 acre Antebellum plantation and mansion was once the family home of Martha Berry, the founder of Berry College. The home and award-winning gardens are immaculately kept. I have attended a Victorian Tea in the garden; the romantic nostalgia of more than 100 women and girls dressed in turn of the century splendor and sipping tea among the flowers will live long in my heart. The gardens are also a favored place for weddings and receptions. A video in the museum tells the inspiring story of Martha Berry and her one room log cabin school which grew to one of the nation's premier private colleges.
