The “Castle on Peachtree” – one of Atlanta’s last remaining mansions of Victorian architectural design – reopened to the public for guided tours earlier this month.
Built in 1904, the Romanesque Revival mansion was originally the home of Rhodes Furniture founder Amos Rhodes. Wired for electricity when it was built, the house boasts over 300 light bulbs, a technological marvel in its day, plus electric call buttons in most rooms and a security system.
The grandest feature of Rhodes Hall is a magnificent series of painted glass windows above a carved mahogany staircase.
