MACON, Ga. – If you are traveling through Macon, Ga., or just want a reason to, here’s one – The Big House Museum.
Right off I-75, The Big House literally housed the Allman Brothers band and crew in the early 70s. They rehearsed there and wrote some of Southern Rock’s best lyrics. The home has been turned into an extensive Allman museum, with an absurd amount of memorabilia and exclusive items.
There are handwritten lyrics, instruments, clothes, concert posters, Duane’s bedroom, photos of the guys in the home …
