The Taylor-Grady House is an Athens, Georgia architectural jewel, currently operated by the Junior League of Athens as a rental facility for weddings and events. Despite the house’s iconic image in the community, few understand its very interesting history. This thesis hopes to design and implement an interpretation plan that will assist in guiding the house’s educational, preservation, and operational goals to ensure its continued benefit to the Athens community and to share its past.
