ATLANTApix: Rise and Fall of the Confederacy

Rhodes Hall
Rhodes Hall
To say that the South is obsessed with the Civil War would be an understatement, but it's not as pervading as one might think...until you start looking.

Fortunately, some of the examples of the fascination with this event are quite beautiful, such as the nine (three sets of three) stained glass windows depicting the rise and fall of the Confederacy (photo) in Rhodes Hall on Peachtree Street.

Built in 1904, Rhodes Hall was originally the home of Amos Rhodes, founder of Rhodes Furniture. Today it's a house museum, an incredible event facility (many weddings are held here), and the headquarters for The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation.

ATLANTApix and ATLANTAvidz of the tourATLANTA blog features a daily photo or video relative to Atlanta. Come back tomorrow for a new one!
