MACON — The Antebellum Trail Pilgrimage, which highlights historical sites along 100 miles stretching from Athens to Macon, is planned for Thursday through Sunday.

The Telegraph of Macon reports (http://bit.ly/ZZGU9i) that participants on the tour set their own pace and plot their own course. They stop at some of the state’s most popular tourist attractions and some private homes not usually open for tours.

New on the Antebellum Trail Pilgrimmage this year is the Sallie Davis House, built in Milledgeville in 1890. The former home of a pioneering black educator was restored in recent years.

Tickets are $25 per person, or $20 with groups of 10 or more, and can be purchased at any of the welcome centers along the trail. Passes can be used all locations.
