Cannonball House and Museum

856 Mulberry Street, Macon, GA 31201, USA

This Greek Revival home, built circa 1853, was struck during the Battle of Dunlap Hill on July 30, 1864, by a cannonball fired from one of Union Gen. George Stoneman's guns. Union forces were thought to have been firing at the Johnston-Hay House on the next corner, which was known to have stored the Confederate treasury. The original brick structure, formerly the kitchen, is located on the property and houses a collection of artifacts from the Civil War.
