History and Mission of Newtown Macon
In 1996, The Peyton Anderson Foundation enabled a group of visionary corporate and civic leaders to establish a non-profit, public-private partnership called NewTown Macon. The goal was to restore and re-establish downtown Macon as a thriving center of economic, cultural, and social activity. For over 15 years, NewTown has been providing Macon with leadership, planning, and support toward this goal. The community has responded by investing over $350 million to improve downtown.
