At Little Richard's request, his childhood home was saved through the plan between the Macon-Bibb County Community Enhancement Authority, Georgia Department of Transportation, Macon-Bibb County, and the Pleasant Hill Community. The home that this legend grew up in was moved from one part of his childhood neighborhood to the other side. Still in Pleasant Hill, Macon, GA!
The community was excited to celebrate Richard Penniman's 87th Birthday on December 5, 2019- a day that Mayor Reichert has allocated as "Little Richard Day"
