Looks like a big trip!

I like how you say "we ate this food"... It looks like some chicken fried steak and gravy, a true southern meal so you got the whole experience!

Nice pictures. Thanks for sharing.

Yes this is a historic house in the middle of the highrises.

By the way, there was a story in the paper last week saying that the employees at the aquarium are convinced that the Titanic exhibit is haunted.

NihonKitty - Nobody lives in the house anymore. They rent it out for Weddings, parties, etc.

I am so glad you enjoyed your trip to Atlanta. Your hotel was about a mile from where I live! This area is actually not Buckhead, but Brookhaven - but it all blends together, so it is easy to think it is the same.

Glad you got to see some fall color, and your pictures were wonderful. Thanks for sharing.

The house was built in 1909...the original owner named it "Fort Peace". It hasn't been a private residence for many years, but it has been a big part of the arts community in the city with the primo location adjacent to Woodruff Arts Center. It has been the home of Atlanta Theatre Guild, Atlanta Writers’ Club, and Junior Theatre of Atlanta. Along with the Wimbish Mansion (1906) and Rhodes Hall (1904) along the same stretch of Peachtree Street, they are among the few surviving turn of the century manions that used to line Peachtree. There may be another one, but I can't think of any more...

A visitor's perspective

Thanks, Nihonkitty.

I grew up around Atlanta. Though I haven't lived there for 30 years, it's still impossible for me to see it through a visitor's eyes, especially a foreign visitor's eyes.

Your photo thread allowed me to do so for the first time. Thanks again.
