Literary Landmarks: Joel Chandler Harris Home

Joel Chandler Harris The Atlanta, Georgia, home of author, journalist amd folklorist Joel Chandler Harris from 1881 until his death in 1908. More commonly known as the Wren's Nest, today it is the oldest house museum in Atlanta. Largely unchanged since Harris's death, the historic home contains the original Harris furnishings as well as the original paint colors. It is an excellent and rare example of the early Victorian Queen Anne style in the Atlanta area
