Wordless: Swan House


When I was a little girl my mother took my sister and I out about Atlanta for girly lunches at various places. By far our favorite lunch place was The Swan Coach House, and we visted often. I adored the main dining room which was lavished in pink and green d├ęcor. The coach house is on the grounds of the grand Swan House Mansion that is seen in the image above.
Here is the opposite side of the grand home:
Today, a visit to my favorite Atlanta girly lunch place includes an all day forway into all things Atlanta history since the Atlanta History Center maintains the Swan House and includes a wondeful museum for Atlanta History.

This is my second Wordless Wednesday foray here at Georgia on My Mind. What better way to share images of my state with people from across the web!

You know, I've lived in GA all my life (with the exception of 3 childhood years in SC and one adult year in NC), and I've never been to the Atlanta History Center, or the Carter Center, or the MLK home.

And I was BORN in Atlanta; how sad is that?

The photos are lovely, and the earlier photos of the Etowah Indian Mounds were lovely.

I suppose I'm not much of a city person; as I consider it, most of the places in the state that I have been to are natural or very historical destinations.

We're going to DC next week and stopping in Charleston SC on the way home; I'll be posting plenty o pictures on the blog....

Hi! Thanks for visiting everyone.

Elizabeth, I'm sorry you aren't in Ga. anymore. I hope you stop by Georgia on My Mind often.

Amy....you must go to the History Center. Your kids would love it. Then you could write your own review at your site. :)

Eliza Doolittle, I posted not long ago that I too was guilty of living in Atlanta and not enjoying all she has to offer. A couple of months ago my daughter and I ventured out to Little Five Points and fell in love with the place. Check the sidebar index to find my post complete with pictures.
