Sidney Lanier was a famous American poet, musician and author who was born in a cottage in Macon, that now has the status of being a historic monument. The cottage was built around 1840 in a classic Gothic Revival style and was in use as a private residence up until 1973, when it was bought by Middle Georgia Historical Society and converted into a museum that pays tribute to the splendid poet. A number of artifacts like Sidney Lanier’s works, his silver alto flute and the first edition of his poems and books are kept in the cottage for the benefit of visitors.
