Rental Information

Andrews Visitor & Education Center
Located at the end of the entrance drive and paved parking lot, the Andrews Visitors and Education Center is a modern and bright facility. Glazed containers and white rocking chairs on the front porch greet you. Enter under a chandelier into a tray-ceiling lobby with handicap-accessible restrooms. The Great Hall with French doors provide natural light from the covered Back Terrace. A room divider can split the Great Hall into two smaller rooms (Room 1 or Room 2) to suit your budget for a corporate function. An appointment is required to view our rental building facilities. Please call (912) 921-5460 to schedule your viewing appointment with a CGBG representative.

Social events -- such as weddings, receptions, reunions, etc. -- require rental of the entire Great Hall (not Room 1 or 2 alone) for a minimum of 8 hours. Depending on the table size and placement, the Great Hall will comfortably accommodate up to 200 people.
