The Rockwell House (c. 1838) is a historic home and event venue available for private reservations in Milledgeville, GA. The Federal/Greek Revival house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was once home to a Georgia governor. The home was built during Milledgeville’s tenure as Georgia’s capital city (1803-1865) and has gone through more than one cycle of splendor and neglect.
After a recent two-decade period of neglect, the property was purchased in 2019 by three young investors with an appetite for a challenge. We’ve recently taken Rockwell through full restoration in compliance with the Secretary of Interior’s Standards for Historic Preservation. Some restoration work is still underway, including restoration and replication of the original windows and shutters.
Today, the Rockwell House is open for guests to enjoy lodging accommodations, event space, and private retreats. An intentional departure from what you might expect to see in a restored historic home, the fresh interior design is beautifully blended with original character-defining architectural features. In more ways than one, the Rockwell House is coming to life again in a unique and vibrant way.
All three of us are Georgia natives, two are Georgia College graduates, and one a Milledgeville local. We love historic houses, historic preservation, and the local community. It is an honor to be the present stewards of this special historic resource and a joy to share it.
