It has that southern charm you expect and has been farily well kept for decades. I have not been there for a couple years. Most of my experience there was for wedding receptions and it was a very nice place to celebrate.

Athens' wonderful museum house/ welcome center is a great place to bring out of town guests or to pick up brochures for a projected trip. The center has great hosts, and there's been a serious effort to decorate the house in authentic period pieces and designs. There's even a nice little gift shop for that special souvenir of Athens.

We were off to a bad start when per a recommendation from the visitor's center staff, we called ahead, got an answering machine. We drove to the site, rang... More

Pros: Uh... It was air conditioned! Cons: The person on duty took forever to come to the door, then proceeded to give us brouchures and tell us it was self-guided. The house was not decorated in any period and was still in use for public activities.
