A.G. Rhodes Mansion in Atlanta

Rhodes Hall built ca 1904 in Atlanta on Peachtree Road by A. G. Rhodes. It is one of the truly beautiful mansions built which once adorned Peachtree Road from downtown all the way to Buckhead.  This mansion survives today.  It was built by Amos Rhodes, the founder of  Rhodes Furniture Company which many of us found so familiar as a downtown Atlanta landmark. This "castle" as it was often referred to was occupied by the Georgia State Archives during the 1960s and 1970s that I recall.  When the Archives constructed a new building, they removed the famous rich magahogy staircase which was the focal point of the house. The upper floors of the "castle on Peachtree" are headquarters for The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation.
