Re: Confederate Home, Atlanta
I suggest you "Google" on "Confederate Home Atlanta Georgia." Quite a few links will appear. Some of the links carry you to photographs of the home(s). I use the plural here because there was a very ornate wooden victorian facility that apparently burned in 1901. It was replaced/rebuilt of brick in 1902. Photographs of the two different facilities are currently (7-9-2008) appearing in Ebay under auction numbers 260239851690 (newer facility) and 350072670955 (burned facility). The address for the Confederate Homes was 410 Confederate Avenue, Atlanta, GA (Fulton County) My mother, who died in 2006 at the age of 92, (and was born in 1914 in a house on Confederate Avenue) used to tell stories of how she (as a child) along with her younger sister and her mother used to walk down to "The Home" to sit and visit with the civil war veterans. My, my. Wouldn't that be great to do today? I hope you have checked back to this web site and see this information.
