Hard Hat Party

  • Porter House 231 Tucker Road Macon, GA, 31210 United States

Please join us for Historic Macon's Hard Hat Party, a Design, Wine, and Dine event. The party will take place Friday, April 7, 2017 from 7pm at 9pm this year's Design House.

Historic Macon is particularly excited to announce that this year’s Design House will be the Porter House, located on Wesleyan College’s campus. Historic Macon worked with Wesleyan College to move the Porter House from its original location in South Macon when it was donated to the college in 2013. The house has elements of the Tudor Revival and Chateauesque styles and was completed in 1928 to serve as a country getaway for the Porters. Wesleyan has retained many of the house’s features, including the original ceramic tile roof, wooden floors, built-in cabinets, casement windows, and intricate wormy chestnut woodwork.

Be sure to purchase your ticket for a "first look" at the house before it is transformed by talented designers. Tickets are $25/person in advance and $30/person at the door. Tickets include a light barbecue, beer, and wine. This year, we'll have a barbecue sauce and slaw contest! Come prepared to taste barbecue and vote on your favorite dish.
