From US 17, turn east on GA highway 99 (beside the Courthouse). Travel approximately 1.5 miles, turn right onto St. Andrews Cemetery Road. (St. Andrews Cemetery historical marker) At the cemetery, turn left onto dirt road which leads to Ashantilly on your left.

There is also a gate off GA Highway 99, past the St. Andrews Cemetery Road. It is not easily seen – yet – but you may use it to come in by the new organic garden and the young long-leaf pine forest replanted fairly recently.

Please call 912-437-4473 to arrange a visit!

Valentine’s Tea is Almost Full!

There are just a few seats left for Joye Hanrahan’s special High Tea on Feb. 16th. We will have a waiting list in case of any cancellations.


Ashantilly’s annual meeting has been postponed to January 29, at 5:00 pm. With no central heat, the old house was just too cold! Milder temps are in the forecast, so hopefully the tabby walls will warm up a bit!


A large crowd was present for the Christmas Open House! Wine and Christmas goodies were served and enjoyed. A very festive evening!


The decorating elves were all busy sprucing up Old Tabby! Michael Angel, of As You Wish Interiors, transformed Mr. Haynes’ library into a winter wonderland! Many volunteers placed fresh greenery and ribbons throughout the house, and the huge Christmas tree was full of lights and ornaments. The old house looked glorious and smelled wonderful!

Archives Room Progress

Volunteers began cleaning the room designated for Archival materials so that it can be painted. The
Attic sale provided the space so that the room can be readied.This will allow the safe storage of valuable materials for future use in research and later display.


Many people came to the Attic sale looking for treasures. They were not disappointed!

While tons of merchandise left the building, there are a few things left. We’re deciding now if a one-day, reduced price sale will be held. Check back in the next week, and we’ll have more information.

Marty Carnes, CPC (Chief Painter in Charge), has a new project. After pressure washing, caulking and patching holes and cracks, she is now sealing and painting the grand staircase at the West entrance. WOW! What a difference!


A great turnout for this year’s Churn-Off, with wonderful ice cream, the cool sounds of Michael Hulett, great raffle prizes, and beautiful weather! Some unusual ice cream flavors, Sweet Olive and Sweet Corn, and decadent Mocha and Milky Way were among the flavors offered. Vicki and Larry, of Olive Affairs, were the big winners, taking home the trophy for best Business/Organization as selected by the judges, and also winning the People’s Choice prize. The judges could not decide between Judy Dodd’s Milky Way and Sara Blocker’s Blueberry Muffin and deemed it a tie for Best Individual. Professor Nicholas Silberg was on hand to demonstrate the small hand press, and printed a card he handset.
