The Tate House in Jasper

The Tate House is a historic property east of Tate, Georgia on Georgia State Route 53, built for Colonel Samuel Tate in 1923. Designed by Walker and Weeks, architects in the Neo-Classical style, the home is made of pink and white marble supplied by Tate's Georgia Marble Company, and sometimes called the "Pink Palace". Tate was president of the marble compa...ny.
The Tate House is two stories, rectangular, with a hipped roof, two interior chimneys, and a pedimented tetrastyle front entrance portico. At the rear is a slightly projecting pedimented section with a one story portico. The interior features excellent mural wallpaper and parquet marble floors. Info from,_Georgia)
It's now used for weddings and other special events.
