Presently, the Swan House is giving tours based on the filming of, "The Hunger Games."

Our dodent remained in character, and asked permission to go out of character once when i asked a 21st century question. The home, gardens, and petiod running automobile are a treasure to experience. If you use a mobility aid, reaching upper floors would be an issue. Would certainly revisit when I return.

Swan House is worth a visit in its own right… it was recreated as an 18th Century English home and is beautifully set out, inside and out… but do take in the other attractions, as it is in the same grounds as the Atlanta History Center, the excellent Swan Coach House restaurant, the Smith Family Farm and the Tullie Smith...
