Gingerbread house on display at mansion
The to-scale handmade gingerbread house replica of the Old Governor’s Mansion is on display for its second year at the Greek Revival mansion.
The gingerbread house is a mirror image of the 174-year-old mansion.
Georgia College alumna Lorraine Downs, owner of Artistry Cakes & Cookies in Sandersville, created the house accented with green-and-red-rose garland and Christmas wreaths.
The showpiece greets guests as they enter the mansion.
