Southern Rock Pilgrimage: The Allman Brothers Big House

Shortly after they established Southern rock in Jacksonville in 1969, the Allman Brothers Band relocated to Macon, Georgia to record at Capricorn Records. From 1970 to 1973, band members and their families lived together in an 18-room Tudor Revival home known as the 'Big House.' Today, the Allman Brothers Band Museum at the Big House celebrates the legacy of Southern rock's founders.
