Historic Macon hosts a series of lectures and talks known as Sidney’s Salons in honor of the famed poet Sidney Lanier. Historic Macon inherited the Sidney Lanier Cottage from the Middle Georgia Historical Society and continues to uphold the legacy of Sidney Lanier through these programs.

Salons are generously supported by Capital City Bank and Bob and Carolyn Hargrove.

All Salons begin with a reception at 5:30pm and the presentation begins at 6pm. Salons are free for members, $5 for non-members, and $3 for students.
