i recently toured the vanlandingham estate and the morehead inn. both have gorgeous grounds and are rich with history. check them out!
the vanlandingham estate was built in 1913 by ralph and susie vanlandingham when they joined his father's cotton brokerage firm.
the dining room table and chairs, as well as many other furnishings throughout the house are original to the estate. some were brought from the majestic hotel in atlanta, which susie owned before.
every room in the house is unique!
the vanlandingham estate was saved from being demolished to make way for high rises when it was put on the national register of historic places in 1977.
the grounds are kept up year round for a beautiful relaxing atmosphere and an excellent location for weddings and events. i've had the pleasure of photographing a wedding here before, and it was absolutely gorgeous!
c.c. coddington built this house in 1917, modeled after his wife's family home in pennsylvania. click to read the romantic story of how they met.
