Description

Tours available weekdays from 11 a.m. to 4p.m.

Tour the impressive 27,000-square-feet Gothic-Tudor Revival style mansion in these tours designed to teach of the mansion's history and legacy. Callanwolde was built in 1920 and was owned by one of Atlanta’s pre-eminent families, Charles Howard Candler, eldest son of Asa Candler, founder of Coca-Cola. Saved from demolition in 1971 by the citizens of DeKalb County and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the architectural landmark in the historic Druid Hills neighborhood of Atlanta, now serves as a unique fine arts center and hub of cultural activity. Tours showcase the mansion as well as the gardens and outer buildings. Highlights include pictures of the home at the time the Candler family lived at the estate between 1920 and 1959, and guests will have the privilege of listening to the Aeolian Organ, which was specially designed for the house and installed during its construction. The organ is comprised of 3,742 pipes and is one of the few of its kind in the country.
