Alexander Hamilton, Jr. and wife Nellie Marie Hamilton

The Hamilton Howell House was built in 1890 by Alexander Hamilton, Jr., the leading African American contractor and builder in Atlanta as his family’s home. The Howell/Youngblood family acquired the house in 1984, making them only the second family to live in the home since its built 95 years earlier. Whether a business traveler or just looking to getaway, The Howell/Youngblood’s carefully and lovingly restored this historic home and now made it available for you to enjoy.

The rooms of the home have been named for American cultural icons. Aretha Franklin – the Queen of Soul, but whose talent spanned all genres of music. Sun Ra – the avant-garde jazz musician. W.E.B. DuBois – scholar, author, philosopher and activist. Elizabeth Catlett – painter, print maker and sculptor. Maya Angelou – poet, singer, memoir and activist. John Coltrane – pioneering jazz saxophonist and composer.

Spend the night in one of our three beautifully appointed bedrooms – the W.E.B. Dubois, the Elizabeth Catlett, the Maya Angelou - or the spacious John Coltrane suite. Each bedroom has a private bathroom, spa quality toiletries and the latest technology. No matter which room you choose, you will rest in luxurious comfort.

The newly renovated home is complete with a state-of-art kitchen, business center, solarium with built-in spa and a deck and patio ideal for outdoor entertaining or just relaxing to the soothing sound of the backyard waterfall.
