Ocmulgee Fields, Inc. is a family-owned business established in 1951 to serve the retail and hospitality needs of the Middle Georgia community.
Today, we continue providing quality commercial leasing, office and retail opportunities to private companies and governmental agencies in Macon. We also offer hotel accommodations in Florida and agricultural investments in the Southeast, Midwest and South America, while still focusing on the needs of our local customers.
In 1951 the name “Ocmulgee Fields, Inc” was chosen to signify our ties to the land and the community of Macon, Georgia. Long before it became Macon, Native Americans commonly referred to the area as ‘Ocmulgee Fields.”
In 1956 the first hotel property was built to serve the hospitality needs of the community, followed by our first shopping center in 1964. Since then, we have built and managed many properties that have contributed to the economic and cultural life of Middle Georgia.
Ocmulgee Fields, Inc. was honored as the winner of the 2000 Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics at the Better Business Bureau ceremony held in Warner Robins, GA.
In 2007 OFI was recognized as a finalist in GA Family Business of the Year Award.
Dwight Jones and his team continue to expand operations primarily in the Agriculture Division, including the first international expansion with the acquisition of 1,600 acres of prime farmland in South America. As a preferred developer with the General Services Administration, Ocmulgee continues to expand its relationship by adding leases with several Federal and State Agencies. In an attempt to mirror current environmental concerns, Ocmulgee purchased the defunct Northside Racquetball Club at auction in late 2013. This 25,000 square foot, 40 year old facility was completely gutted to the shell and converted to Macon’s newest class A office building. Nearing completion, Northside will be an Energy Star rated facility and will also be home to Ocmulgee’s corporate headquarters, together with approximately 22,000 square feet of additional office space.
