This year, Lyn and Whitey Hunt will host Derby Day at their c.1875 historic Godfrey-Hunt House. As one of Madison’s grandest historic properties, it is one of only a few homes in Madison owned by the same family since its construction. It’s also the only house in Madison to be remodeled by renowned Georgia Architect, Neel Reid (1922). This distinguished home with its high-style architecture and gracious grounds is the ideal backdrop for party-goers to enjoy live viewing of the Kentucky Derby, a delicious Derby supper by Epting Events, a live auction, bourbon tastings, beer garden, best dressed and best hat competitions, and, weather permitting, the Derby Dash.

We invite you to support the unique mission of Georgia’s first countywide conservancy by sponsoring Derby Day 2017 (and you’ll secure your tickets TODAY)
