Oak Hill & The Martha Berry Museum
24 Veterans Memorial Highway, NE, Rome, GA 30161 - United States
A magnificent example of Greek revival architecture, Oak Hill was the home of Berry College founder Martha Berry. Extensively redesigned in 1927, Oak Hill opened as a house museum when the Martha Berry Museum opened on the estate in 1972. Today, it is preserved as it was when she lived there. The estate boasts over 100-acres of gardens and trails, and the museum houses a remarkable collection of art and exhibitions. Visit www.berry.edu/oakhill/ or call (706)368-6789 to find out more.
