MARIETTA – The Friends of Brumby Hall cordially invite the public to step back in time and experience history by touring Brumby Hall and Gardens located at 500 Powder Springs Street, on Monday, May 29, 2017 from 10am – 5pm.
The Brumby House was built in the Greek revival-style house in 1851 by the Georgia Military Institutes’ first superintendent, Colonel Arnoldus V. Brumby. While touring the home you will hear the history of how the house was used as a military hospital in 1864 and will hear stories from the day. Learn how the house was spared in General Sherman’s infamous March to the Sea.
Historians and reenactors will represent life during the mid-19th century with demonstrations of weaving, sewing, military life, playing dulcimers and children’s games.
