  • Cool historic house with great Atlanta history. It's ashame there's not more of the history relating to the Mitchell's around, but this apartment complex is a good representation. The information in the exhibits and the tour guide taught me things I never knew. Happy to support Atlanta's heritage. Plus it's a great weekend activity to go walking midtown.
  • I brought my mom and my aunthere on Mother's Day and it was a home run they loved it I enjoyed my self as well upon coming in I was greeted by a young lady that was very friendly and I asked her where the restroom was a she not only told me she showed me and ended the conversation off with you all enjoy. All of the employees are friendly but she went beyond and before we left me and my mother asked her how long had she been working with you all and. She told us 2 weeks we couldn't believe it you guys keep up the great work.....
  • Nothing too fancy about the actual house, but the tour was fantastic. What an interesting and inspiring woman, and I don't say that lightly. Definitely check it out if you like the book/movie or just need something to do for a few hours one Saturday around Tech campus.
  • The tour guide, Linda, was knowledgable and entertaining. So glad I took the tour. All employees were very friendly.
  • Take the tour, they start every 30 min. I liked the other building also, where I watched documentary movie.
