The Callanwolde Experience – Tour the Candler Estate

Enjoy a guided tour of the mansion and a walking tour of the grounds and outer buildings. Callanwolde is an impressive 27,000 square feet Tudor Revival style mansion built in 1920. It was owned by one of Atlanta’s pre-eminent families, Charles Howard Candler, eldest son of Asa Candler, founder of Coca-Cola. Saved from demolition in 1971 by the citizens of DeKalb County, the architectural landmark in the historic Druid Hills neighborhood of Atlanta, now serves as a unique fine arts center and hub of cultural activity.

The 12-acre estate is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and remains a gracious and inviting home for the community to enjoy.
