Welcome to Macon's First Ward - the most culturally diverse and exciting area of the City. Macon was founded here at historic Fort Hawkins and we still boast several nationally-recognized historic districts.
Some of Macon's largest employers are based here, including GEICO and Coliseum Medical Center. Thousands of visitors receive their first impressions of the City when they attend meetings at the Centreplex and Wilson Convention Center - both located in the First Ward. Our churches and schools proudly promote their rich history while celebrating an exciting future. Pride of place shows - whether you visit Cross Keys or Shirley Hills, North Highlands or Belvedere, Shurlington or Lake Arrowhead.
We work hard and worship prayerfully but we also enjoy leisure activities from Fort Hill's Rosa Jackson Center to the Bowden Golf Course. Come join us in Macon's First Ward - 20,000 residents can't be wrong!
