Home History The Wimbish House

The Wimbish House


Located on what was once called “Mansion Row,” The Wimbish House is one of the last remaining homes on the formerly residential, fashionable Peachtree Street.

The Wimbish House was built in 1902 as a residence for prominent attorney William A. Wimbish. Designed by famous architect W.T. Downing in French Renaissance Revival style, the Victorian-era home featured steep gables, intricate detailing and massive stone masonry ornamentation, as well as the city’s first swimming pool.

The Wimbish family lived in the Midtown home until 1919, when it was purchased by the Atlanta Woman’s Club, which still owns this historic landmark.
