A nice place to spend a couple of hours. Nothing fancy but pleasurable. It's a park and gives you an idea about the 30s. It does not involve too much walking and the staff is very friendly.

Amazing, gorgeous, well maintained house and gardens! Exquisite art and antiques abound! Beautiful rooms and halls once used for the elaborate parties of Atlantans. This site is very captivating, plenty of photo opps!
