A piece of history reflecting the grandeur of a bygone day is preserved in the heart of Atlanta. The architecture and furnishings are candy for the eyes. Wandering the grounds, it is easy to be transformed. Dining or attending an event at the Swan Coach house is a memorable event.

The Swan house is in a complex of other historical buildings and a great museum. It is well worth the trip outside Atlanta. It presents a great display of the fashion and furnishings of the period.

I finally went to the Swan House and was blown away. All the interpreters are in character and are very knowledgeable! The house is beautifully staged at Swan Houses height of popularity. Gives visitors a great sense of how the house looked in the early 20th century.

The Swan House is located a short walk behind the Atlanta History Center and is included in the admission. There are a couple of old cards out front and the house gives you a vivid picture of what living in the 1930's was like. Very interesting.

I always enjoy touring through homes that reveal how people lived in a historical period. This home was typical of my experiences in other preserved homes but made more enjoyable by the costumed guides who remained in character as they answered questions, etc. Nice touch and I bet children would enjoy. Of course, the house itself and furnishings were delightful.

The Swan House & surrounding grounds are jewels tucked neatly off the beaten path. Elegance abounds!

The Swan Coach House is known as a ladies lunch spot and place for wedding showers but the men I have taken there like it just as much. Great place to eat and converse. Try the chicken salad and the frozen fruit salad.

A beautiful Southern mansion to visit, Lots of photo opportunities. The two characters playing the role of husband and wife were excellent. They never left there character even when you asked questions that dealt past their period in history.

Part of the Atlanta History Center and very open. I was so impressed that we could freely wander around most of the rooms -- very few ropes. Even though it was large and elegant, it still felt like a family lived there.

Visited here as part of the Atlanta History Center. We had recently visited the Biltmore House so I guess we were a little jaded. It was interesting due to the fact that the house was used in the Hunger Games movies.
