The Castle on Peachtree

by Chris Schroder


If you have ever driven through the heart of Midtown, you have likely seen Rhodes Memorial Hall, “the castle on Peachtree Street.” The Romanesque Revival building was completed in 1904 for the family of Amos Giles Rhodes, proprietor of Rhodes Furniture.

The castle is one of the finest expressions of Victorian architecture in Atlanta. One of the most stunning features is the set of stained glass windows depicting the rise and fall of the Confederacy.

Today, Rhodes Hall serves as a museum, houses The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation and is available for special events. To learn more, visit http://www.georgiatrust.org/historic_sites/rhodeshall/.
