The Historic Vineville neighborhood was one of Macon’s first suburbs and has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1980. This year’s tour showcases a rare look into the delightful bungalows, cottages and community garden. As an added bonus for tour participants, this year we’ve included a tour of The Big House and Allman Brothers Band Museum which is located within the neighborhood. The neighborhood’s semi-annual tour is an exceptional opportunity for guest to go inside these private homes lavishly decorated with style and care for the holidays.
This year’s tour will also feature hands-on demonstrations in each of the homes. Stay tuned for updates as we release these exciting new elements.

About the Historic Vineville Neighborhood Association:
The Historic Vineville Neighborhood Association (VNA) is an active and dynamic organization open to all residents of the Historic Vineville District and to anyone interested in the preservation of the area as an economic and social asset of Macon. Founded in 1978, the VNA was responsible for collecting the necessary data on neighborhood homes for consideration as an historic district by the U.S. Department of the Interior’s National Register of Historic Places. The neighborhood achieved this status in 1980. Today, the neighborhood is a southern architectural gem that hundreds of families from all ages call home. With dozens of annual events for neighbors to enjoy, the VNA strives to foster a strong and active community environment while enriching the greater Macon community.
