The Marietta Pilgrimage
A Christmas Home Tour through Marietta, Georgia

The Phoenix Cottage, c. 1929

96 McDonald Street


The Phoenix Cottage PhotoThis charming colonial revival bungalow was constructed in 1929. Many of the home’s original features, including a working fireplace in the living room, can still be seen today. The home’s current owner, Carrie Kennedy, is an avid art collector, and many beautiful artworks are on display throughout the home, including a drawing by Claire Dunaway (Cyr), daughter of former Marietta Mayor Bill Dunaway. Tour goers will be especially interested in seeing the master bedroom suite in the converted attic. The exposed brick column in the space was originally used as the chimney for the wood/coal burning cook stove located in the kitchen below.
