Art Print Notes

Hay House is sometimes called the Palace of The South, and certainly it is palatial in design, wouldn’t you agree? This gorgeous piece of historic Macon, Georgia, was built by William Butler Johnston for his wife Anne. The couple honeymooned in Europe from 1855 to 1859, and it should be evident that part of that time was spent in Italy. Hay House was designed in the Italian Renaissance Revival style by architects T. Thomas and Son with a good deal of input from the Johnstons based on their love of the architecture they had seen in Italy.

It’s been more than a century since William B Johnston and his new bride built the house of their dreams on Georgia Avenue in Macon. After the death of Anne, Hay House passed to their daughter who had married into the Felton Family. Following the Felton family, the home was sold to the Hay Family who have become since synonymous with the grand old home. It was the Hay Family who ultimately gave what is officially the Johnston-Felton-Hay House to the Georgia Trust to operate as a museum.

Anyone who has visited Macon or lived there almost certainly recognizes Hay House. It’s certainly a local jewel in Georgia’s crown the proverbial sense. Hay House stands apart from the rest of the architecture of the region in a most charming way. It’s distinctive and elegant and, yes, palatial. I’m not sure Hay House is as widely known as I think it should be, but I wanted to highlight this beautiful Macon landmark with my artwork. There’s a sense of the warm afternoon sun on the red bricks. And the skies and trees speak of a lush spring or summer day in the south. There’s a purposefully timeless feel to this print. It is today or did the Johnston couple just step inside?

Hay House today is not a home to one family but a home to Macon. In addition to preserving the past as a museum, Hay House is available as an event space for weddings, receptions, and banquets. Do you have special memories of a day at Hay House? Perhaps this Hay House print would make for a beautiful way of remembering that special occasion? I hope you will stop and share what makes this Macon art stand out for you?
