Last weekend my wife and I headed out for a short weekend getaway to Rome, Georgia. As we left the house the thought that we would end up attending a Bull Riding event was not anywhere in our universe. Growing up in Texas I have been to many rodeos, however my wife had never seen anything like this….
I have been in Georgia for twenty years and have never taken the time to visit Berry College. These English Gothic style structures were built with money donated by Henry Ford of the Ford Motor Company. Ford did not want recognition for his donation and it was not revealed until 1930 that he was the benefactor.
The entire campus was quite beautiful and has a great history. Martha Berry originally started this venture in the early 1900’s to educate rural students. To this day students still work on campus to help pay for their education. They do everything from accounting to running the waste water plant.
There is also an incredible Grist Mill on the property.
