Community Service Day at the Wren’s Nest

I wrote this a while back about West End gem The Wren’s Nest. Seems that their resident director/blogger was appreciative and is at once rewarding us and taking advantage of our goodwill; April 14th will be a community service day at The Wren’s Nest. For helping clean up their 2.25 acres, you will enjoy free beer, music, and food. In addition, it seems they are extending an offer of free admission to Metblogs readers.

That’s a lot of free stuff, people.

    My wife and I moved to West End about 2 years ago and we finally visited the Wren’s Nest about 4 months ago. Ms. Dorothy Lloyd was our tour guide and we had the company of a couple from Roswell. I was at first blown away by how beautiful and authentic this home was. Next the history and depth behind the man that owned it Joel Chandler Harris (Former editor of AJC and writer of Songs of the South). When I was a kid I saw the Disney movie (shot on the Wren’s Nest grounds), but had no idea of the stories behind the story.

    Interesting fact is that JCH built beautiful homes for his children that are occupied homes on the streets of West End (Oglethorpe St has a couple). I went to the Wren’s Nest to take architectural notes for the renovation of my own home a couple blocks away, but left with so much more. The Wren’s Nest is truly an Atlanta treasure.

    And if that is not enough… They now have “Free Beer”!

    Davesm, I should put you on payroll.

    Three things:

    1. Not just any free beer, but the good people at Twain’s Billiards and Pub in Decatur have donated a keg of their brew for us.

    2. The action gets started at noon tomorrow.

    3. Song of the South wasn’t filmed on the Wren’s Nest grounds, but I believe Disney took a log cabin of ours with them to Arizona and shot the movie there. Details = sketchy at best.
