About

On 33 acres in beautiful Buckhead, we offer the widest variety of event options at one location. Let beauty and serenity set the scene at the glorious historic Swan House Gardens. An outdoor gathering at this iconic 1928 mansion rises to unforgettable heights on a private lawn with majestic cascading fountains and the elegant intimate Boxwood Garden. After your ceremony, stroll across the bridge for cocktails outside on the Museum Terraces. If you prefer an inside option, the Atlanta History Museum has award-winning exhibitions, and we allow beverages in the exhibits for a very fun cocktail hour!

Enjoy simple elegance with your dinner reception in the Grand Overlook ballroom. This unique ballroom featuring Brazilian cherry wood floors, barrel vaulted ceiling, and floor to ceiling windows overlooking the magnificently illuminated Quarry Garden. The combination of these venues is as versatile as they are breathtaking.

As a facility rental, we provide tables and folding chairs inside, as well as complementary parking. All outdoor furniture will need to be rented. Catering would be provided through one of our amazing catering companies we partner with and can average $120 to $200 per guest. Beverage service and bartenders are additional and are provided by the History Center. It is about $65 per person for a 4-hour premium full bar.

We have a full property minimum on Saturdays of a peak month: April, May, June, September, and October. The facility rental fee for the Swan Gardens, Atlanta History Museum, and Grand Overlook ballroom on a Saturday is $13,500 and we have an additional $5,500 beverage minimum. Fridays and Sundays are $10,000 with a $2,500 beverage minimum.

Most of our weddings can expect to spend between $400 to $1,000 per guest after all vendors and costs are added up and divided out per guest.

We look forward to making more history by hosting your unforgettable wedding with us.

Perfect Fall wedding

The Atlanta history center was a perfect venue for my husband and I. We searched many places and immediately fell in love with the Swan house. The staff were very attentive. Steven, the event director, was knowledgeable, kind, and extremely responsive with emails. We would without a doubt choose the Atlanta History Center again for our wedding.

Anna is a complete doll to work with!

Anna and the team at the AHC are phenomenal and so professional! Anna was a dream to work with—quick to respond to any questions, flexible with plans and brainstorming possibilities, and the sweetest personality! Our wedding venue wowed our guests unlike anything else. We cannot thank Anna and the AHC team enough!

Best Experience at the History Center!

Having our wedding here was the best decision. There are so many beautiful outdoor spaces for the ceremony and cocktail hour, and the ballroom is a beautiful blank canvas for any style. We worked with Sam who was amazing throughout the process and invaluable to ensuring our wedding ran smoothly. She was also particularly helpful with COVID-related questions. Highly recommend!
