Rhodes Hall

Posted by on July 1, 2016
Rhodes Hall is one of the last great original  homes on Peachtree St. in Atlanta. It was completed in 1904 and built by a successful furniture retailer who offered reasonably priced furniture and installment plans--both innovations at the time. It cost $50,000 ($700,000 in today's dollars) to build and boasted over 300 light bulbs at a time when such luxuries were rare. Five-hundred-pound blocks of stone from Stone Mountain 24 miles away were hauled in. Rhodes' store still stands and today is a Residence Inn. Rhodes Hall is used as a wedding venue and was recently referred to as "the 800-pound gorilla currently home to the non-profit  Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation." The first photo is dated 1909. Rhodesca1904Rhodes
