“Ladies lunch spot - Swan Coach House”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

All Atlanta brides have a lunch date at the Swan Coach House. Men are welcome but it is more of a ladies treat. Tour the actual Swan House, a beautiful home and then enjoy lunch at the Coach House. Go at 11:30. The Swan House is part of The Atlanta History Center.

“Interesting Tour and Beautiful Grounds”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

As part of the History Center admission you can get a free tour of the Swan House. The tour is led by someone posing as a member of the family that owned the house and everyone is asked to play along but the tour isn't that long so the act isn't that valuable. The house itself is tastefully furnished (the family left all the furnishings to the museum) and has some advanced features for the era. I enjoyed walking around the adjacent woods and magnificent front entrance as much as I did the tour of the house but I suggest you do both.

“High Society!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Went on a Saturday, and if you're into it, it can be fun. Very high society tea lunches...pair it with their gardens or the Arlanta History Center and make an afternoon or morning of it.

“Wow, How the Rich Lived in the 20s”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

What a nice historical house this turned out to be. Part of the Atlanta History Center Tour. One of the Locales you can visit on the Atlanta City Pass. House is furnished with the original furniture. It is well maintained, beautiful gardens. You can view the parlors, kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms and formal dining room. You can also tour the servant's quarters. The house has the first electric refrigerator in Atlanta. An original ice box. Well worth the visit, especially if they have the role players there for the day.

“Gorgeous Art Deco home”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We had a very enjoyable visit to the Swan House while visiting the Atlanta History center. The house was built in the early part of the 20th century but a wealthy Atlanta family. The house is a combination of classic European design and Art Deco interior. The rooms feature much of the original furnishings. Particularly the dining room and the bedroom suite of the family matriarch were absolutely gorgeous. The grounds surrounding The Swan House are stunning and there are hiking trails throughout the grounds. Plus, entrance to the Swan House and docent-lead tour are included in your paid admission to the Atlanta History center. Well worth the visit!
