The Tate House is a historic property and was built by Colonel Samuel Tate in 1923. The Tate family began the mining of marble on the land the house stands on. Legends of bright pink marble, referred to as “Etowah” marble, came true when Colonel Sam saw it coming from the quarry behind the house. The house is listed as the Pink Palace and is used now as a wedding venue where lifelong memories can be made.
