Wren’s Nest

It is considered to be quite uncommon that one would actually be able to tour the home of a famous person, more so when you have read so much about the person. Or rather, read much about his works. If you happen to be a fan of the author of Br’er Rabbit and Br’er Fox, you would surely not want to miss the opportunity to be able to visit the home of this famous author. Located at 1050 Ralph David Abernathy Blvd SW, Atlanta is the beautiful 19th century farmhouse that once was the home of Joel Chandler Harris, the author of Br’er Rabbit and Br’er Fox, which they call “Wren’s Nest”. If you think that you may not be able to find your way to this place, don’t worry too much about it because with the help of an Atlanta rental bus, your problem will not be a problem at all. All that you need to do is to enjoy your trip.

Once you arrive at the Wren’s Nest in the Atlanta rental bus, you may not always find that there are a lot of people visiting at any one time and if you are the type who enjoys full attention from a guide whenever you are visiting an interesting place, with lesser people visiting, you can surely expect to enjoy a good time of sharing with the guide. Usually, the guide would bring the visitors to view the rooms of the house and share the history of the house, as well as the life of the family and the many different types of events that were held at the home. The home was bought by Joel Chandler Harris and was renovated into the current beautiful home and you will also notice that some of the rooms in the house are left just the way they were from 19th century era and are well maintained to keep its original appearance.

Do take note that the Wren’s Nest is open on Tuesdays right through till Saturdays, from 10am to 2.30pm, with storytelling sessions every Saturday at 1pm, so if you want to experience the storytelling session, be sure to arrive at the grounds of the home before 1pm. You can always make arrangements with the Atlanta rental bus company to have them send you to the Wren’s Nest early so that you can enjoy a tour around the home first before you join in the storytelling session.
