On 33-acres of gardens and woodlands in the heart of Buckhead, the Atlanta History Center with its elegance, historical appeal and natural beauty offers a variety of indoor and outdoor venues for weddings, corporate events, award dinners, mitzvahs, rehearsal dinners, fundraisers, lectures and other special occasions. From intimate celebrations and ceremonies to 500-person galas, host an outdoor reception in the timeless Swan House Gardens or on the rustic Smith Family Farm, witness the spectacular garden views from the Grand Overlook Ballroom or McElreath Hall, or enjoy the award-winning interactive exhibits in the Museum Atrium. With five different venues, the Atlanta History Center and Swan House Mansion offer a unique and unforgettable setting for your next event.
Enjoy a spectacular evening in the Grand Overlook ballroom featuring a barrel vaulted ceiling, Brazilian cherry-wood floors and floor to ceiling windows overlooking the illuminated wooded Quarry Garden. This well-known Atlanta event venue can host standing receptions up to 750 guests as well as seated dinners for 500 and 400 for dinner and dancing.
Your guests can begin their evening in our recently renovated atrium then tour our award-winning exhibitions while sipping a libation and enjoying learning about Southern history. The Museum is a splendid event venue in its own respect, but can be combined with the Grand Overlook ballroom as well.
