The Grand Hall is designed to be very showy and breathtaking when the visitor first enters. The hall is divided by two tall columns with the Tower-of-the-Winds design, a curved arch and two small niches on either side above the columns. At the end of the hall is the staircase. It gracefully ascends to the second floor in a continuous horseshoe pattern. Large wall niches are designed into the curved wall of the staircase.

Their only child Charles was born the year following their marriage. On November 20, 1855, the twenty-two year old pharmacist obtained property at 1017 Third Avenue for the sum of $1,950. This then is the first purchased home in which Dr. Pemberton lived. As a memorial to Dr. Pemberton the Coca-Cola Company gave this house, his downtown home, to the Historic Columbus Georgia Foundation in 1969. HCF moved it to this address and began restoring it with funds donated by friends of Coca-Cola.

I was really surprised at what I saw. The house has been freshly painted and the museum is just the downstairs of the house. A lot of memorabilia to take in. Wasn't sure I was going to get in....make sure you knock loud so the care taker hears you. You gotta go!
