The Wimbish House

Map to Location

The Wimbish House, an eclectic French Renaissance Revival-style home has ornamented the intersection of Peachtree and 14th Street since 1906. The house is a designated national, state and city historic landmark located in the heart of Midtown and sits on what was once known as “Mansion Row.” Designed in the Chateauesque style by W.T. Downing, prominent Atlanta attorney William A. Wimbish commissioned the home to showcase his family’s social standing.  Downing is known for many notable buildings around Atlanta, including the Gothic-Revival Healey Building, the Romanesque-Revival Church of the Sacred Heart, and Lupton Hall at Oglethorpe University, among other structures.

Today the home serves as the headquarters to the Atlanta Woman’s Club, who acquired the residence in 1920. Since its formation in 1895, The Atlanta Woman’s Club has made many significant contributions to the region in support of education, literacy, economic development, and City beautification, among other efforts. Discover more about the home and the Club’s impact during this 1 hour guided tour!
