Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

serendipity and sheer luck have made this house noted for its survival. a collection of period-correct furnishings are cared for here. the civil war artifacts are displayed with local pride in their Confederate origins. a lovely old home worth seeing.

Located at 856 Mulberry Street in Macon, Georgia, the Cannonball House is a historically significant house with a compelling story behind its unusual name. On July 30, 1864, the house coined its name due to damage caused by a cannonball striking the house from a Union Army attack during the Civil War. Built in the authentic Greek Revival architectural style as a planter's townhouse in 1853, it was known as the "Mansion of the Old South" and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1971. The entire house is furnished in the 1853-1870 period and includes the recreated meeting rooms of the Adelphean and Philomathean societies (the world's first college sororities), a hand-molded two-story brick kitchen, servants' quarters, quilts hand-made between 1850 through 1920, 19th century wedding dresses, original day dresses and children's clothing and a Civil War museum that displays Georgian officers' uniforms, used weapons, company flags and a 1864 bronze cannon forged at the Macon Arsenal. In fact, the Cannonball House is the only home in Macon that received damage during the Union Army's occupation. Today, artifacts from the Antebellum era through the Reconstruction era play a major role in the house's mission to glorify Georgia's heritage. Open from 10 to 3:30 Monday through Saturday, it serves as a historic house museum that culturally and architecturally presents the past of Macon.

Loved the architecture of the house in general. The Judge's room upstairs is my favorite. Love the bed and decor as well as the view from the beautiful windows. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly...a pleasure to talk to. The brick kitchen is amazing for it's time. Although this was the home of a plantation owner, the occupants, Cora and her sister, of the brick kitchen were paid staff and Cora was left an inheritance in the will of the lady of the house. We found it interesting that Cora's grandchildren and some of their family members have visited the house and have corresponded with the staff for several years.

Visit this beautiful half Greek Revival home, meet the staff, and enjoy a lesson on the owner, his wife, and the others who have lived in the house through the years.

This home has been HIGHLY modified over time, and most likely little resembles the structure with original fixtures and furnishings. There is an odd collection of "stuff," from sororities to civil war collectables, which are rather forced on display in an odd room and disorganized way. Our downstairs tour guide was very good; the girl who did our upstairs tour was 1) new, and 2) not well informed...at best. Perhaps the most troubling issue with our visit was the debate over "servant" versus "slave," where the staff at the home doesn't seem to want to acknowledge the institution of slavery...and how bad it was. The visit here is only a few dollars, but in terms of time, do NOT miss the Hay House, which is a much grander tour, all around.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this historical home. The museum docent was passionate with the history and furnishings of the home. His passion showed for the civil war -he is a civil war reenactor and had a wealth of knowledge.

I didn't realize my review was still in draft form. We were there on a hurricane evacuation and loved the entire area. It has to much to offer in the way of sightseeing and history. The Cannonball House is simply lovely. It sits on a rather busy street, not like a plantation home at all so prevalent in the house. This is a stunning old mansion that is well worth a visit. The grounds aren't big, but are well cared for. Take about an hour and visit this amazing old piece of history.

You visit historic homes because you want to see/admire the architecture and/or love the back stories. This house has both, but the storytelling is the best. Expect an extremely knowledgeable docent to provide more than the usual details.

The house is easy to find, though parking can be a bit tricky. You also might have to push hard on the entrance door.

But it is worth it. Really.

I greatly enjoyed my tour of the cannonball house. It was fascinating to hear of how a cannonball made it 1.5 miles. The house as well restored has a lot of interesting artifacts including a leaning clock. Our tour guide was sensational! The gift shop has interesting items including toe and frog jam.

This may have been the only house hit in the Civil War but it was by accident and the house/family is capitalizing on this obscure fact. It is enough to see the house from outside and read the placard...
