Atlanta History Center
This complex comprises a history museum, a research library and archives, two historic houses, extensive gardens and a restaurant. Four excellent permanent exhibits in the Atlanta History Museum bring the city's defining experiences to life. Be sure to visit the elegant Swan House designed by Philip Shutze in 1928. In contrast, the simple frame buildings of Smith Farm (1845) provide a glimpse into the lifestyle of an early Georgia farm family.
