Home to The Allman Brothers Band’s original members, their families, and various friends from 1970 to 1973, The Big House allows the unique opportunity to experience the surroundings of the rock and roll tenants of the 18-room home. Berry Oakley, his wife Linda, their daughter, Berry Oakley’s sister Candy Oakley, Duane Allman, his wife Donna, their daughter, and Gregg Allman all called The Big House home. In fact, Dickey Betts wrote “Blue Sky” in the living room and “Ramblin’ Man” in the kitchen.
Renovated by The Big House Foundation in 2009, the interactive museum preserves the history of The Allman Brothers Band. It contains the world’s largest collection of Band memorabilia and the gift shop has a collection of items sure to please any ABB fan!
The Big House celebrates Macon’s own rich musical heritage by sharing the joy of music with our youth – the Museum is also a field trip destination for schools, camps, scouts, and homeschool groups. It’s also a unique event venue. Rent the Big House for weddings, corporate events, and private parties, or enjoy live musical performances throughout the year.
