GEORGIA RADIO - I can't think of a more southern way to spend Mother's Day, than strolling onto the lawn of Pebble Hill Plantation for tea with mom. What an event! Pebble Hill Plantation is one of Thomasville, Georgia's famous hunting estates. Today, it's run by the Pebble Hill Plantation Foundation, a charitable nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving, interpreting, and presenting the property to the public through art, antiques, furnishings, history, gardening, and human interest.
The entire property is still intact from its previous life as a private home, and hunting estate, all 3000 acres! This was the first year the foundation hosted a Mother's Day Garden Tea, and judging by the sold-out attendance, it was a rousing success. The reigning Ms. Thomasville, Aniya Morris and her mother attended, there was a great talk about Camilla's and their history in South Georgia, and of course there was tea...lots of tea and wonderful food.
The property hosts around 42 weddings each year, and is open for tours, and special events. The upstairs rooms have been converted into an art gallery, and are host to some truly incredible original works focused on equestrian sports and hunting. Downstairs, the living quarters tell the story of life at Pebble Hill during the 1930's and beyond. Presidents, Governors, and countless other people of note have been guests over years, and the folks at Pebble Hill would love to add your name to the guest book!
