Georgia’s Old Capital
Heritage Center At
If you want to be remembered, do something memorable.
What better way to do something memorable than to help preserve Milledgeville’s history with your support of Georgia’s Old Capital Heritage Center at The Depot, Inc. The Heritage Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that owns and operates three historic properties: the 1825 Brown-Stetson-Sanford House in Milledgeville’s Downtown Historic District, The Just Imagine Cottage with offices and meeting rooms adjacent to The Depot on the campus of the former Central State Hospital campus, and The Depot, future home of the Heritage Center and exhibits on the history of this area, a café, bookstore, theater, open-air community stage, and STEAM summer classes.
GOCHC is supported entirely by memberships, donations, fundraisers, and grants. Your donation enables us to “Tell the Stories” and keep Milledgeville history alive for generations to come.
Georgia’s Old Capital Heritage Center strives to help people understand and appreciate the value of historic preservation. Whether our historic buildings, places, or stories, these are all irreplaceable and continue to inform modern life in Milledgeville.
Depot Project, the renovation of the 1891 train depot for a regional Heritage Center, is underway! The deconstruction of the depot interior was completed in 2018, and the surface water remediation project was completed in 2019. The Board of Trustees continues raising funds for the architectural plans and interior renovations.
