...various neighborhoods in the Atlanta metro area that have unique Antibellum homes. We'll be having friends from the West Coast coming to visit in a few weeks and they are very much looking forward to seeing such homes.

Note: We already have Madison on the schedule. We just want to compliment that tour with some in-town tours, as well. If anyone just point out some neighborhoods, that would be great, too.

Thanks!

ABM

Antibellum: before the war (civil war).
Sherman burned Atlanta- there is little or nothing that fits that description in Atlanta.
Madison is definitely a stop.
How about Savannah?

Heh, good point.

Even unique older or "gracious" homes and/or mansions in the Atlanta metro would work wonderfully.

Wish we had time to do Savannah with them. Too many other things going on, though.

Thanks!

Gracious homes?
O.K.- Ansley Park
And the whole area around West Paces Fry Rd. (Governor's Mansion).

Inman Park works too - particularly Elizabeth St. - these are all Victorian or Craftsman. Also... Grant Park - again .. turn of the century homes.

Good stuff, thanks! I was able to find some neighborhood maps of Inman and Grant Parks. I will be sure to add those to our itinerary.

Thanks!

yep - Inman Park would be it. On page 4 of the Atlanta pic thread there are some pics of some of the styles of homes there.

BTW, thank you for that. I forwarded that thread to my friend, who will be coming out with his wife. He simply said, "YES!!"

Hence, this thread.

Yep, that's about as old as it gets, thanks to the War of Northern Aggression.

If you're going to Madison, take some time to drive out 278 to Washington, GA...it still retains quite a few antebellum homes as well.

Looks great, but DANG that's a long ways out there!
