A Closer Look at Rhodes Hall

I wrote about Rhodes Hall shortly after I returned to Atlanta, back in September 2010, so I won't go into great detail about the available tours or event rental space, but I would like to go into some of the finer architectural and decor details of the mansion...

When you visit—and definitely splurge for a behind-the-scenes tour—observe everything...look up and down and sideways. There's so much detail to take in here!

The stained glass windows, which depict the story of the U.S. Civil War, have a considerable amount of detail...you could spend the entire day just gazing at the windows!

Those stained glass windows frame one of the most beautiful stairwells I've ever seen. It's no wonder so many Atlanta brides choose Rhodes Hall as the perfect location for their wedding ceremony.

Already possessing a rich history, Rhodes Hall continues to make memories that Atlantans will recall for centuries...what's your memory here going to be, I wonder?

There are numerous fireplaces throughout the mansion...be sure to study each in great detail, because that's exactly what they offer—an immense amount of detail!

And keep an eye out for the more subtle details. Looking at this photo, you wouldn't think this radiator is at all subtle, but there's so much going on in this house that any of the hundreds, if not thousands, of details could be easily overlooked...so keep your eyes peeled.

Not everything in the house reeks of masculinity...there are some gorgeous feminine appointments as well.

Remember, I said to look up. If you don't, you'll likely miss this kind of detail...actually all of the ceilings have very intricate details, details you definitely want to see!

Even knowing that Rhodes was the man behind Rhodes Furniture, I think you'll still be blown away at the detail he put into his home. I probably shouldn't be surprised, but still...

And of course the total package is something right out of Hollywood. You would never dream that while standing on Peachtree Street looking in this kind of beauty awaits you. And I guarantee everyone who ventures in for a tour of Rhodes Hall is destined to be pleasantly surprised.
