The Oak Hill home, built in the 1880s is the Greek Revival mansion of Martha Berry, founder of Berry College. Oak Hill was the childhood home of Martha Berry and later became her adult residence, altered to her taste. Oak Hill was gifted by Martha Berry to the schools and remains intact as she left it in the 1930s.

The landscape architect, Robert Cridland, contributed his talents to the school and the result is a collection of gardens and trails that range from our intimate “Goldfish Garden” to the grand “Sunken Garden.” You can access these gardens with general admission.

The Martha Berry Museum opened in 1972 on the Oak Hill Estate as a compliment the home as a place to further tell the story of the Berry Schools. The museum has multiple galleries exhibiting the Permanent Collection and Temporary Exhibitions.

Oak Hill’s current temporary exhibition is "From Tree to Treasure: Woodturnings by Al Christopher." The exhibition showcases over 50 woodturnings by Al Christopher, a Berry alum (61c), and it provides a glimpse into the rich and intricate world of turning wood through interactive displays and videos of the artist.
