Join Buckhead Heritage Thursday, Dec. 13, for a rare opportunity to see this historic Buckhead home, Halcyon Oaks, while gathered with friends at the 2018 Annual Holiday Party. Guests will gather to celebrate the holidays with an evening of drinks, music and dining starting at 7 p.m.

The Eaton home on Howell Mill Road, built in 1921, was originally known as the Mary Elizabeth Tyler house. It is a Classical Revival-style residence that features a two-story pediment portico supported by massive Corinthian columns. The central entrance is bordered by sidelights and capped by a fanlight. A one-story porch stretches the length of the primary façade and wraps around both sides of the home. Rear additions were made to the residence in 1977 and 2000. The House was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.
