Oak Hill to Offer Historic Bike Tours Beginning June 20

Oak Hill and The Martha Berry Museum will offer Historic Berry Bike Tours every third Saturday of the month beginning June 20 at 10 a.m. Tours are free and open to the public. Reservations are encouraged but not required. Participants must furnish their own bicycles, and helmets should be worn by all riders. Call 706-368-6775 for more information or to RSVP.

Tours of the main campus will begin at Hermann Hall and will include such notable landmarks as Roosevelt Cabin, the Berry College Chapel, the “Log Cabin” campus and Berry’s famed Ford Buildings. Optional tours of the mountain campus will be offered as well.

The main-campus loop is approximately three miles in length and features a mostly flat surface with a few rolling hills. The ride is appropriate for both children and adults.
In the event of rain, tours will be canceled.

Oak Hill and The Martha Berry Museum is a popular attraction and the former home of Berry College founder Martha Berry (1865-1942). It is located at the intersection of Georgia Loop 1 and U.S. Highway 27 in Rome, Ga. More information is available via the Web at
