Since the early 1900’s, Mercer undergraduates have been making the 90-mile trip from Macon to Penfield to celebrate the founding of Mercer University. Pilgrimage to Penfield is an integral part of the Mercer freshman experience. Penfield, which is located in rural Greene County, was the home of Mercer from 1833-1871. Students participating in the Pilgrimage will find the original University chapel and a cemetery that includes the gravesites of Jesse Mercer, as well as a number of former University presidents, trustee and leaders.
