The Swan House was built by Edward Inman a wealthy Atlanta businessman. After their Ansley Park home burned down he, and his wife Emily, commissioned Philip Trammel Shutze as the architect for Swan House and its gardens in Buckhead. The Swan House Fountain was modeled after a fountain in the gardens of the Villa Corsini in Rome, Italy.
