How would you rate Herndon Home?
Built in the early 1900's, the Herndon Home Museum is an elegant time capsule of history filled with inspirational messages and artifacts. Mr. Herndon himself, was an extraordinary man with the courage and ambition to prevail over any obstacle within his path to success. May his journey of success live on through the eyes and ears of museum tourist for years to come.
Well preserved historic home museum.
Great historical museum
A brilliant slice of history! The story of Alonzo Herndon is inspirational and this home, forming part of his legacy, is very well preserved. This one’s a hidden gem and there’s much more to see here than the more popular swan house.
Although the hours displayed are Tuesday and Thursday, visits can be arranged and other times of the week if you book in advance.
Wow! Great staff with warm smiles. They gave an amazing tour. You see and hear about Mr. Herndon and his family. Someone once said, "You don't know where you are going, unless you know where you come from...." You will be inspired to do great things and give back.
Really enjoyed the museum!!!
A hidden jewel in Atlanta’s AUC/ historic West End area. The home is well kept and preserves the Herndon legacy beautifully.
Great place for a field trip, beautiful home, outstanding testimony, go see what's going on!
From enslaved to Georgia first African American millionaire
Wish schools did more tours here. Such an inspiration and amazing home! If you even have an interest in Atlanta history or home design, check it out! Can see the Mercedes Benz stadium from the parking in the back of the house.
The home of Alonzo Herndon, from enslaved to millionaire, Georgia first African American millionaire. Alonzo Herndon was th2 founder of Atlanta Life Insurance Company and his son Norris Herndon, was the banker behind ths Modern Civil Rights movement. I will treasure this place with my life.

Great staff. Very knowledgeable
Just wanted to say thank you to Madam Julissa and Mrs. Roberta. You all continue to keep me coming to the Herndon Home. I will be bringing my pre-k class.
Whether you are white, black and everything in between, this is apart of American History! A very interesting part of it.
Wanna see the true face of gentrification? Visit the Herndon Home. With the new Dome in the background and development slowly encroaching on this house it easily displays the displacement that Atlanta’s African American community is dealing with. Once the most affluent areas of Black Wealth in the city since the Sweet Auburn district, today everything around it has begun deteriorating and has been purchased by outside developers and other communities. The home which was designed by Mrs. Herndon displays the power and excellence of our community. The teams protecting it have done quite a good job at it and the history is everywhere.
My family took me here as a birthday gift because I love Atlanta and Georgia history and I've wanted to visit the Herndon Home for a long time. This tour...read this and 2 more
