About the Wren’s Nest

The Wren’s Nest was the home of Joel Chandler Harris from 1881 until 1908.

The structure is one of only a few remaining Queen Anne Victorian homes in Atlanta. It’s a unique example of upper middle class living around the turn of the 20th century. Today the home features most of the Harris family’s original furniture and belongings.

The house was named after wrens made a nest in the mailbox 120 years ago. If you visit in the spring, you might see that wrens still make nests in the mailbox.

The museum officially opened as a house museum in 1913.
