The Historic Pace House
On the National Register of Historic Places, the Historic Pace House is located in the Vinings neighborhood of Atlanta. This venue is ideal for weddings, private dinners and corporate receptions.
The Historic Pace House was built with the remains of the 17-room antebellum home of Vinings founder Hardy Pace. The house served as General Sherman’s temporary headquarters where he planned the siege of Atlanta in 1864. Hardy’s son, Solomon Pace, returned home after the Civil War to find the home in ruins.
Sometime between 1865 and 1874, Solomon painstakingly rebuilt the home—albeit more modestly—from doors, windows and remnants of several small cabins that survived the fire of the main house.
Today, the Pace House consists of three rooms: a parlor, a dining room and a bridal room. The adjacent Old Pavilion, itself a Vinings landmark, was a place where old Atlanta Society entertained and danced the night away during the late 1800’s and until the early 1900’s. The Old Pavilion was placed on the national historic register in 2010 and today is still a place to dance the night away.
