Originally built in 1904 as the home of Rhodes Furniture founder Amos Rhodes, Rhodes Hall has been an Atlanta landmark for over a century.
Designed by Willis Denny and costing over $50,000 to build, the Victorian home features a mahogany staircase, exterior built from Stone Mountain granite and stained glass windows depicting the rise and fall of the Confederacy. Following the death of Rhodes and his wife, their children handed over the house to the state to be used for “historic purposes.”
Today, the house serves as a museum, events venue and headquarters for The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation.
