The Castle in Midtown

Atlanta house

The Castle has been attracting attention throughout Atlanta ever since its construction began around 1909. The unusual house was designed and built by Ferdinand McMillan, a wealthy agricultural supplier, as his retirement home.

Also known as Fort Peace, the architectural landmark features a base made of Stone Mountain granite, shaped asbestos shingles and a high granite wall. Following McMillan’s death, The Castle was closely connected to the Atlanta arts community – housing artists, curators and art-related events.

The building was eventually sold to a New York investor and is now home to the restaurant Rose + Rye, which opened last year.
