The Atlanta History Center will wow you!
I was lucky enough to receive a custom tour by Steven Dickson, Special Events Sales Associate at the Center. There’s nothing ordinary about this place. Located on 33 acres in Buckhead, the Center houses 13 different event spaces, from the intimate to the breathtaking.
You could choose to host your event at The Grand Overlook with its barrel-vaulted ceiling, Brazilian cherry-wood floors, and an entire wall of 14-foot windows overlooking the Quarry Garden. Or you could host an unforgettable wedding ceremony or a cocktail party at the historic Swan House Gardens. Built in 1928, this estate garden venue is an Atlanta icon that is versatile enough to suit a wedding ceremony, a rehearsal dinner, mitzvah celebration, cocktail party or any other special occasion.
For those looking for something a little more rustic, the Center offers the Smith-Tulley Farm and period gardens. If you host your event at the Center, not only will your space be extraordinary, but you will be supporting the Center’s mission to connect people, history, and culture through exhibitions, educational history programs, historic gardens and houses; and the preservation of documents and photographs.
Here are a few photographs from my tour:
The Swann House and Gardens, built in 1928, provides an awesome setting for any event.
Blooms in the gardens at the Swann House change with the seasons.
The Tulley-Smith farm at the History Center includes houses and outbuildings.
No farm is complete without a resident cat.
Visit The Atlanta History Center during the week to see workers enacting the roles of those who worked the Tulley-Smith Farm in the 18th Century.
The clean, modern lines of the main building at the Atlanta History Center live in stark contrast to the rustic Tulley-Smith Farm buildings.
