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