The Wren's Nest is the Queen Anne Victorian home of Joel Chandler Harris, recorder of the Br'er Rabbit stories. Located in Atlanta's historic West End, the Wren's Nest is Atlanta's oldest house museum and is currently in its 94th year of operation. The mission of the Wren's Nest is to preserve the legacy of Joel Chandler Harris and the heritage of African-American folklore. Our docents provide tours Tuesday through Saturday, and our storytellers tell every Saturday at 1 p.m. and by appointment.
The Wren's Nest sits on more than 2 acres of land just southwest of downtown Atlanta. Our natural grass amphitheatre seats more than 800 and is capable of hosting weddings, concerts and other special events.
