More About Rhodes Hall
Amos Giles Rhodes, founder of Rhodes Furniture Company, had Rhodes Hall constructed on 114 acres between 1902 and 1904. The 9,000-square-foot house was built in the Romanesque Revival style and cost $50,000 to build at the time. Until 1928, the Rhodes family lived in the elegant residence, which features inlaid parquet flooring, silk walls and granite from Stone Mountain. In 1929, the home was donated to the state of Georgia for historical purposes. Rhodes Hall was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. In 1983, it became the headquarters of The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation. Today, the home sits on one acre and is used for weddings, receptions and other private events. Rhodes Hall is open to the public for tours Tuesday and Saturday.
