Things to Do in Georgia: Covington Historic Homes Tour


Things to Do in Georgia: Covington Historic Homes TourOne of the most charming parts of Covington is their historic homes. These structures give us a peak into the past and allow us to “take a walk” through the Old South.  Not only can you still take a stroll through these beautiful neighborhoods, and view the exquisite homes, you can also tour them! On the Covington Historic Homes Tour, you can explore seven different establishments in the area. These include the Worthington Manor, Zachary-Echols House, High Point at Chesnut Grove, the Old Church & Kitty’s Cottage, Sandtown Place, Mount Pleasant, and the Burge Plantation.

This tour is a great gift idea for the Civil War buff in your life, or a fun family trip! Each homes, church, or plantation is filled with unique facts and has a personal story that expresses the rich heritage of the area. For instance, did you know that Mount Pleasant is one of the oldest homes in Newton County? Its original residents also started the first school in Newton County! Interesting facts like these and more are all waiting in Covington for you! Get to know the town and the people that helped make Covington what it is today.

If you are a history fan or just happen to find yourself in Covington, taking the Historic Homes Tour is something you’ll want to put on the top of your list of things to do!
