So very worth the drive to go on Saturday at 1pm and hear the storyteller weave the tales of B'rer Rabbit and B'rer Fox. The home is nicely done in period pieces and have obtained many original family items. Go and have a "zippiity do da" afternoon.

This is the perfect girlfriend excursion in Atlanta. I went with two friends and we had a delightful tour. We arrived at opening time on a cold winter morning and were the only visitors there. We were treated to a very personalized tour by docent, Nanny. She was full of personal anecdotes about the family and the house. We learned... More

The Wren's Nest is a delightful stop in Atlanta. The home of Joel Chandler Harris and "Uncle Remus" is full of stories and tales of the Old South. Nanny was our guide and a major reason to recommend the stop. Her knowledge of the family and the visitors to the Wren's Nest bring it to life. Some of the actual... More

The Wren's Nest has been beautifully preserved/restored. The lower floor of the home is the only area open to tours, but the docents are very knowledgeable about the life and works of Joel Chandler Harris. The visit itself won't necessarily take long--and hour or so will do, but be sure to plan your trip around 1pm on Saturday so you... More

This was the final stop on an art trip my husband and I took to celebrate the Valentine's Day weekend. This stop was to focus on the art of storytelling. It was interesting to learn how the Brer Rabbit stories came to be published, tour the historic home, and hear stories from a storyteller. We purchased a picture book, which... More

We arrived about an hour before the 1:00 pm story telling. The tour guide was warm, friendly, informative and very knowledgeable about Joel Chandler Harris. The story... More

We visited today with only a little bit of knowledge about the Wren's Nest. We found out about this historical home from a pass that we checked out at the Gwinnett Public Library, this was one of three places we could visit. Based off prior reviews, everyone said to go for the storytelling and they were right! Josie was our... More

My fiancé and I were looking for something fun to do this afternoon and stopped in at the Wren's Nest for a tour. The tour was so informative and interesting and the house was beautiful! It was low-key and lovely!
