1437 Woodliff Street
This was the childhood home of "Little Richard" Penniman. It is just north of downtown on a slight hill in one of Macon's oldest predominantly black communities (Pleasant Hill), only about a block from I-75. In addition to the history of this community, I also loved the abundance of trees.
Little Richard was the third of 12 Penniman children and when you see this relatively small yellow bungalow, you may just get a new understanding of family togetherness.
This is still a private home so you cannot tour the inside but there are several other spots of historical interest in the area including the Romer Congregational Church directly across the street, the Booker T. Washington Community Center just around the corner, the nearby Harriet Tubman Museum (Georgia's largest African-American museum), and the Sgt Rodney M. Davis Monument erected in honor of Macon's only native to be awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.
