The Lemuel P. Grant or L.P. Grant Mansion is a historic Atlanta home in Grant Park at 327 St. Paul Avenue. Grant was a civic leader, major landowner and railroad engineer in the early days of Atlanta. Today the house is one of very few antebellum structures in the city, built in 1856, and was the birth place of golf legend Bobby Jones. Grant later donated his land, which became Grant Park and the neighborhood of the same name.
The Atlanta Preservation Center occupies the house and renovations and reconstruction are ongoing — there is only one story remaining of the original three. Tours are available to public.
