It was beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Atlanta, Georgia when the Peachtree Garden Club hosted its annual Christmas Home Tour on December 6th. The event featured four festively decorated homes in Buckhead, one of which was the site of a cast party for Gone With the Wind in 1939.

 

The tour dates back to 1949 and continued through the 1960s. It was revived in 2008 as a way to give back to the community. Proceeds from the tour benefit the Peachtree Garden Club Community Trust Fund which serves charitable, scientific, and educational needs in the fields of conservation and horticulture. To date, the fund has awarded more than $400,000. Recent recipients include the Atlanta Botanical Garden, Atlanta History Center/Swan Woods Trail, Cherokee Garden Library, Friends of English Avenue, Historic Oakland Cemetery, Neel Reid Scholarship Fund for the School of Environment and Design at the University of Georgia, Shepherd Center, and Southeastern Horticultural Society.

 

Founded in 1923, Peachtree Garden Club was the first garden club in Atlanta, Georgia.
