About the original Kimball House The Kimball House was the name of two historical hotels in Atlanta, Georgia. Both were constructed on an entire city block at the south-southeast corner of Five Points, bounded by Whitehall Street (now part of Peachtree Street), Decatur Street, Pryor Street, and Wall Street. The completed six-story building was built of brick and painted yellow with brown trim.[1] It had a four-story open-air lobby filed with plants, flowers, and a 12-foot-diameter fountain.[1] The House also boasted gas-light chandeliers, a central heating plant, a laundry, billiard hall, and 500 hotel rooms.[1] It also had sixteen stores.
