history : once a dairy farm, now a bed & breakfast

Mileybright Farmhouse was originally built in 1900 by Judge John S. Candler as his country gentleman’s farmhouse and dairy farm. This historic bed and breakfast offers a country feeling in an urban setting.
The farm was the boyhood home of Tom Forkner, co-founder of Waffle House restaurants. In 1926, 425 acres of the farm became part of historic Avondale Estates.
