The Wren’s Nest is the preserved home of Joel Chandler Harris, who wrote the Brer Rabbit and Uncle Remis stories. Daily tours are offered at the house at 1050 Ralph David Abernathy Blvd. along with storytelling.

The closest MARTA station is West End on the red/gold south rail line.  The house is about a 10 minute walk away, but you can also get on bus 71 at the station, which is a little safer and better for children. It is free to ride the bus if you are transferring from a train.

If you plan to walk, exit the station on Lee Street and turn right. At the first stoplight, turn left on Ralph David Abernathy Blvd. and walk about two blocks (see walking map).
