The event will include a free-form tour of Barrington Hall with a behind-the-scenes look at family life. Also enjoy hors d’oeuvres, dessert, wine, beer, signature cocktails and coffee. Tickets include 2 drink tickets.
The May Patterson Goodrum House – Behind the Restoration
Wednesday, March 14, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
The May Patterson Goodrum House
320 West Paces Ferry Road NW, Atlanta
Inherit GA Members will get an exclusive tour of the meticulous in-progress restoration of the 1930 May Patterson Goodrum House. This English Regency-style home was designed by renowned architect Philip Shutze and is considered to be one of his favorites. The design won Shutze an honorable mention from the Architecture League of New York, which was a rare distinction for southern architecture and the creator of some of Atlanta’s finest built environments.
This stunning home features an intricate Chinese Chippendale-inspired staircase and octagonal breakfast room accented by a restored Menaboni mural. The house was purchased by the Watson-Brown Foundation in 2009 and has been undergoing an extensive restoration ever since.
Attendees will enjoy cocktails and hors d‘oeuvres in the beautiful Shutze-designed garden.
Space is limited; sign up today before the event sells out.
