Built in a classic Italian Renaissance Revival style in 1855, the Johnston Felton Hay House is a historic palatial residence in Macon. The mansion has an astounding 24 rooms spread over an area of 18000 square feet, and the whole house is decked with amenities that were ultra modern for the age it was built in.

We visited the Hay House during Spring Break and I definitely recommend going. You're not allowed to take pictures, but that made us focus a lot more on the details of the architecture of the house; breathtaking. The tour guides are very knowledgeable and was able to answer any questions we had about the history of the house. It's amazing to see old history like this.
Loved this house and tour! Kind of long for little kids but still amazing, all of the thought and detail that went into it. And our guide was great! Definately worth doing.
The best old home I have ever been in. The tour guild did a outstanding job. We were impressed at every turn. This is a MUST SEE in Macon Georgia.
A very interesting historical feature in Macon Georgia. The guides are extremely friendly and very well-informed. The tour is enjoyable, but can be a little warm on a hot day.
Very cool part of Macon history. No spoilers but I learned things about it and Macon that I never knew before. We were there for a wedding reception BTW and that was beautiful. Great location for that.
