This stunning Herndon Home was the abode of one of America's most successful African-American entrepreneurs, Alonzo Franklin Herndon, the founder of the Atlanta Life Insurance Company. Set on a sprawling estate, the house was designed in the Classical Revival style, and the interior boasts an eclectic array of various style permutations from Rococo to Renaissance Revival. Originally completed in 1910, the home has been fully restored, and is now maintained as an archive and museum, The Herndon Home Museum. Regular tours of the various rooms and exhibits housed within are regularly conducted; check the website for further details.
