Callanwolde Echo

on Atlanta Sounds

Listen here »

Today the Callanwolde Fine Arts Center is a hub for everything from children's music classes to seasonal holiday parties. But the Gothic-Tudor mansion used to be the family home of Charles Howard Candler, the eldest son of Asa Griggs Candler, the co-founder of Coca-Cola. Outside the entrance to the home -- just above the driveway -- you may notice a unique auditory echo effect, as demonstrated in this Atlanta Sounds recording.
