Wren's Nest

I haven't visited the Wren's Nest (home of Joel Chandler Harris) since I was my son's age. I remember enjoying it, particularly the story teller, so when I heard they were having a free day I decided I had to go. My kids being who they are, decided they would go with me. We had a tour of the home and listened to a story teller recite some of the stories. My kids thoroughly enjoyed the story teller, my son even won a CD from the gentleman. On the way home, they insisted we listen to all the stories on the CD. We were only there for an hour or so, but definitely worth the trip.
