Tour Atlanta's Historic Homes & Landmarks During The Georgia Trust's Fall Ramble, Sept. 10-12

/PRNewswire/ -- The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation will host its annual Fall Ramble Friday-Sunday, Sept. 10-12, in Atlanta, where guests will have the opportunity to tour more than 25 historic properties not usually open to the public.

During the weekend, 'Ramblers' will tour grand private homes in Inman Park, Ansley Park, and Grant Park. Ramblers will also discover the rich heritage of Sweet Auburn Avenue, and enjoy special tours of the Fox Theatre, St. Luke's Episcopal Church, and other Midtown landmarks.

Ramblers will begin the weekend Friday night at Rhodes Hall, headquarters of The Georgia Trust and one of the last remaining mansions on Peachtree Street, with a special reception and a behind-the-scenes tour.

On Saturday morning, Ramblers will enjoy breakfast and an orientation at historic St. Luke's Episcopal Church, where its gorgeous windows were created and installed over a sixty year period and were the work of three world renowned stained glass studios.

Saturday afternoon Ramblers will enjoy a luncheon at Inman Park United Methodist, a Romanesque style church completed in 1898, while exploring residential gems in Atlanta's oldest neighborhoods. That evening guests will experience a rare opportunity to dine at the exclusive East Lake Golf Club, the home course of legendary golfer Bobby Jones.

Sunday's Ramble will begin with a delicious brunch at Oakland Cemetery, the final resting place of many Atlanta notables, followed by a tour of beautifully restored Victorian homes in Grant Park. The tour will conclude with an exploration of Sweet Auburn, birthplace of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement.

Check-in and registration for the Fall Ramble will be on Friday, Sept. 10, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Rhodes Hall, 1516 Peachtree Street NW, and at St. Luke's Episcopal Church, 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 11.
