Living History means exactly what it says in Macon. An unmatched presence of ante-bellum homes, mansions and theaters that has presented everyone from Harry Houdini to Little Richard and is home to musicians such as the Allman Brothers and classical violinist Robert McDuffie. Unlike so many other cities that tear down their old buildings, Macon protects and preserves the evidence of its centuries as a center of commerce and culture, on the banks of the Ocmulgee.
Chef Marvin Woods visits the unique Empire State South. This southern style restaurant appeals to a broad range with options ranging from breakfast, lunch and dinner with a to-go lunch program, courtyard bocce ball and an extensive coffee bar.
