Virtual Tour of Rhodes Hall

Here’s your chance to peek inside Atlanta’s “castle on Peachtree.” While it was originally the residence of Rhodes Furniture founder Amos Rhodes, today it is a house museum and one of the most unique venues in Atlanta for social and corporate events. The upper floors are the headquarters for the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation.

A Greener Rhodes Hall

The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation is committed to “going green.” We know that adopting greener practices and policies, conserving energy and building green can not only positively impact our organization’s energy use and efficiency, but also positively impact the environment and the communities in which we live and work. Rhodes Hall received Energy Star certification from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, signifying that it performs in the top 25 percent of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency and meets strict performance levels set by the EPA.
