I went for the Saturday storytelling and house tour, and was delighted far beyond my expectations. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and unhurried. The storyteller was jawdroppingly good. The tour guide radiated with love for the building and its former occupants. I highly recommend a visit on Saturday when the storyteller is there.

This is one of many of Atlanta's old early 20th century homes. This home once belonged to Uncle Remus, author of works like "The Tar Baby" and "Brer Rabbit". This hone is now a museum and plays host to a number of events, including a Gatsby Lawn Party (which was the purpose of my visit).

Had a wonderful talk and tour with the docent. Learned a lot about Joel Harris, his home, his background and what inspired his stories of Brent Rabbit and Uncle Remus. A great way to spend a couple of hours.

Very nice intimate venue. Food vendor offering take away plates at an excellent price. Outdoor venue with free parking, bring your own food, chairs, tables, coolers. Tables with chairs are available for an additional price of course. The admittance fee is quite affordable. Upscale port of Johns were clean with inside lighting and sanitizer. A very cool place to hang out. The performance was excellent. The entertainers would probably appreciate some fans blowing....this is HOTLANTA😎
