We visited this home in 2016 and enjoyed the tour and history lesson. I don't think young children would like it, but our 9-year-old granddaughter thoroughly enjoyed it. The tour was a smallish group and everyone had enough time to ask questions and admire the home and it's furnishing. Parking is available behind the home, though we didn't find that... More

If you are interested in South and the confederacy this is definitely worth a visit. We took the tour and what the guide didn't know about the house and all the things in it, isn't worth knowing, she was VERY knowledgeable. It took about an hour and was very thorough. There is free parking on the street and the whole... More

If you love history, go experience any classes or offerings made by the Cannonball House. My son took a class here discussing what it would have been like to live here in the 1800's. The staff was very informatively! They dressed in period clothing and demonstrated toys, letter writing, and note taking which would have happened in that time period.... More

Enjoyed my visit to the Cannonball House. Very typical of southern architecture, and historical context. The docent was very knowledgeable about the house, the neighborhood and the time period. I would highly recommend. Convenient and walkable to other sites, and the downtown area.

Built in 1953 as a planter's mansion, the house is named for a cannonball that landed inside the house during the Civil War without exploding. The cannonball was intended to hit the Hay House where the Union army believed the Confederate gold was being stored. You will see the home and gardens as well as the outdoor kitchen and servants...

This is a lovely home with an interesting history and excellent preservation. Visited on a recent weekday afternoon with my Phi Mu alumnae group, and really enjoyed it. Jessie was our guide, and she is fantastic. The parlors that are devoted to Phi Mu and A D Pi history were the highlight for us, of course, and the reason we... More

Making our way to Florida while avoiding Matthew, we found ourselves in Macon on Saturday mid afternoon. We only had time for one stop and selected the Cannonball House. Our self guided tour allowed us all the time we wanted to enjoy the historical value of the location. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable & willing to answer any questions. The... More
