On 33 acres in beautiful Buckhead, we offer the widest variety of special event options at one location. Let beauty and serenity set the scene at the glorious Swan House Gardens. Outdoor gatherings at this iconic 1928 mansion rise to unforgettable heights on a private lawn with majestic cascading fountains and the beautiful boxwood garden and porch. Your guests can tour the mansion for a few hours during your event and consider adding a costumed interpreter that will perform historical character narratives.
Enjoy a spectacular evening in the Grand Overlook ballroom featuring a barrel vaulted ceiling, Brazilian cherry-wood floors and floor to ceiling windows overlooking the magnificent wooded Quarry Garden. Embrace nature on our outside terrace and amphitheater. For a one-of-a-kind experience consider adding first-person interpreters playing characters from Atlanta’s history.
Our 1860s farmhouse, outbuildings and period gardens have remarkably rustic overtones and charming allure. Enjoy this peaceful setting among the trees where your guests will experience a truly memorable, fun and historic experience. If you want the down-home country appeal to go one step further, consider adding craft demonstrations by our costumed interpreters and having the sheep out to welcome your guests.
McElreath Hall is one of our most versatile spaces where a sky-lit atrium creates a welcoming entrance for the Members Room, our boutique ballroom, and the 400 seat Woodruff Auditorium. The Members Room offers a warm and gracious atmosphere with three crystal chandeliers and floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the Quarry and Asian American gardens.
