Hickory Hill is the historic home of Georgia's foremost populist statesman, Thomas E. Watson. The mansion has been fully restored to its 1920s appearance, inside and out, including over 90% of the original furnishings, wallpapers, and lighting. The mansion is situated on 256 acres that are managed much as Mr. Watson desired, with the grounds left wild to serve as a natural habitat for Georgia native animals, birds, and insects. The mansion has a changing exhibit gallery and a small gift shop.
We recommend calling ahead to schedule a tour as we are often closed to the public to accommodate school groups.
The house and grounds are owned and operated by the Watson-Brown Foundation, Inc.
