About this event

The Wren’s Nest—the historic home of author, journalist, and folklorist Joel Chandler Harris, best known as the recorder of the Brer Rabbit folktales—is pleased to host historic house tours and a live storytelling performance every Saturday.

Our Saturday hours of operation are 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and guests are asked to purchase a timed ticket for tour admission.
If you wish to enjoy both a tour and the weekly storytelling performance, please select the 1:00 p.m. ticket option.

Note: If Eventbrite ticket sales have closed for a particular date, please call us at 404-753-7735 to make arrangements for admission.

About the tour: By exploring each room of The Wren’s Nest, the historic home of a noteworthy American writer, tour takers will learn about the life of Joel Chandler Harris, the significance of the Brer Rabbit folktales in American literature, and trends in Atlanta history encapsulated by the city’s oldest house museum.

About the storytelling: For decades, The Wren’s Nest has presented a weekly storytelling hour on Saturdays, allowing visitors to hear the tales in the spirit of their original form. Professionals perform at these sessions, all of whom bring a unique style to their craft, making the old stories come to life for people of all ages. With their talents, we can share the stories that entertained, inspired, and taught so many (including Joel Chandler Harris) and introduce them to new audiences.
