Alonzo F. Herndon Home

Alonzo F. Herndon was the nation's first black millionaire who made his fortune by creating Atlanta Life Insurance Company.  Born into slavery two years before the Civil War, the company he created is still the nation's largest black-owned insurer.  His beaux arts-style home was built in 1910.  Original furnishings and collections of Venetian and Roman glass dating back to 200 B.C. are on display in his 15-room mansion.
