My friend and I each have lived in Atlanta more than 20 years and never had visited this hidden gem before. We decided to take MARTA since we visited on Halloween, a day with legendary traffic in Atlanta. Dicey neighborhood on the 5 block neighborhood walk from the West End Marta station, but no one bothered us.
Joel Chandler Harris worked at the "Atlanta Constitution" newspaper for 26 years before he quit to write the Uncle Reemus/Breer Rabbit stories former slaves had entertained him with. The docent, an elderly but energetic woman named Nanny, was full of fascinating stories and answered all of our questions. Next time I will try to come on a Saturday when the Wren's Nest has storytellers to entertain the public.
