The Swan House- Atlanta

 Atlanta- Buckhead
The Swan House
 the real life story of the Inman family
and the setting for a historical fiction book- 
and the place of some filming 
Swan-House-Hunger Games

Swan House, traditionally known as one of the most 
recognized and photographed landmarks in Atlanta, 
is an elegant, classically styled mansion built in 1928 
for the Edward H. Inman family, heirs to a cotton brokerage fortune. 
The mansion, designed by famed Atlanta architect 
Philip Trammell Shutze,
 provides a glimpse into the lifestyle of this Atlanta family
 during the 1920s and 1930s.

Wonder what stories have been seen from 
This Window
over the decades.
