Our Historic Building is Elegant & Flexible

This historically renovated building's neoclassical architecture boasts beautiful composition and southern charm. Guests find delight in the rich details that surround their events: the Doric columns of the entry portico, the black and white Italian marble floors of the rotunda, the illumination by the famous Czechoslovakian chandelier seen in "Gone With The Wind", and more throughout the historic space.

History

The Historic Academy of Medicine, built in 1941, was host to the city’s oldest medical society, the Medical Association of Atlanta. The Building’s grandeur represented the prominence of the medical profession in the city, as well as the society’s determination to provide the finest medical training and education in the growing healthcare community. In 2008 the Historic Academy of Medicine was gifted to the Georgia Tech Foundation by the Atlanta Medical Heritage Inc. for the Institute's use. The building started a 6 million dollar, 18 month renovation in 2010 and celebrated its 70th anniversary with a grand re-opening on December 11th, 2011.
