Mayor Richard Bentley
Welcome to Milledgeville, Georgia, the Old Capitol City of Georgia, and the first lady of the South. I trust you will find our city full of Southern charm and warm, friendly people. You can walk in the footsteps of history in Milledgeville as you visit the many antebellum sites such as The Old State Capitol Building and the Old Governor's Mansion. Both sites have been carefully restored to their pre-Civil War appearance. The Old Capitol Building sits on the beautiful campus of Georgia Military College, an accredited Junior College. We are home to Georgia's only public liberal arts college, Georgia College and State University. The campus at GC&SU is a part of our downtown where you may find shops and eateries of all descriptions.
Milledgeville has many natural amenities, like Lake Sinclair, a reservoir of Georgia Power, and the Oconee River. We are in the initial stages of a river walk or greenway that we hope to develop in the very near future.
Our city has many services to offer you, like Milledgeville Mall and the many restaurants that lie both downtown and along Highway 441, as well as others throughout the area. We are over 200 years old with much history to offer, but we are also looking ever so eagerly to our future.
We welcome you to visit and enjoy Milledgeville, and ask you to stay awhile. I believe once you experience our grand city you won't want to leave. Contact our offices at City Hall and we will be happy to serve you.
With warm regards,
