Rhodes Hall
Piedmont Hotel 1903-1963

Willis F. Denny (1874-1905) was an architect active in Atlanta, Georgia around the turn of the twentieth century. He was the architect of Rhodes Hall (1903) and the Kriegshaber House (1900, now Wrecking Ball Brewpub), both listed on the National Register, as well as the demolished Piedmont Hotel (1903).[1]

His father-in-law was Major Asbury Fletcher Moreland, who lived on what is now Moreland Avenue and after whom the avenue was named.[2]

A number of his works are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[3]

Works include (with variations in attribution):

Denny built his own home at what was 30 Moreland Avenue[4] (according to the old street numbering system) in Moreland Park, now part of Inman Park, immediately north of the site of the Asbury Fletcher Moreland estate and two lots north of the Victor H. Kriegshaber House. The home was razed in the 1940s,[5] however two lion statues marked with the number "86" still stand at the current address of 326 Moreland Ave.[6]
