Historic Macon Foundation’s 18th Annual Decorators’ Showhouse will serve as the Cherry Blossom Festival’s Tour of Homes.

The home located at 306 Orange St. in the intown Macon Historic District dates back to the 1880s when Benjamin Lawton Willingham gave the lot to his daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Richard Furman Lawton.

Historic Macon is currently rehabilitating the property based on standards set forth by the Secretary of the Interior in order to make it eligible for tax incentives for preservation totaling over $100,000 for the new owners.
