     Throughout the halls of this estate, the influence of the McLaurin family is palpable in every way. While all members of the lineage are worth mentioning for their accomplishments, inside the home, the history of a few McLaurin’s is present in such a way that you can physically hold it, and just maybe, take it home with you, and have the success and love that emanates from this family bleed into your’ life. Both the late Benjamin F. McLaurin’s, and his son, the late Benjamin P. McLaurin’s presence and achievements can be seen. Mr. B. F. McLaurin joined the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, the first Union owned and operated by African Americans to be recognized by the Federal Government, in 1926, and served later as a vice president, national secretary, international field organizer and supervisor of the Eastern zone. He continued to be extremely influential in the areas of politics, race, and particularly, labor. He was known as an honorable man, and an even more virtuous husband, and there is a laundry list of Associations, Councils, Committees, Foundations, and Boards that Mr. McLaurin rose to hold positions in. His ability to ingrain himself in the changing tide of social justice is something his children wouldn’t forget.

     After their young lives started to bear the fruit of adulthood, Mr. Mclaurin’s children started to make a name for themselves, regardless of their father's reputation. Benjamin P. received an English degree from Morehouse College in 1969, and never looked back. Becoming infatuated with the environment, he gained a position as the first Director of Career Placement at the college, eventually, rising through the ranks to become the Director of Career Services for the Business Administration and Economics Division. Along with three other gentlemen, they founded a program that would eventually send hundreds of students overseas to business hot spots, in fact, McLaurin’s efforts alone sent hundreds of young adults to Wall Street internships, which is practically unheard of. Ben considered himself to be fond of the more refined aspects of life, and was consistently a leader and backer of programs to better his students’ business etiquette, and was known for his cordiality.

     Benjamin loved his sister Dana, who lived together for a significant portion of the later parts of B. P. McLaurin’s life, here in Atlanta. Dana had an extensive career in Administrative Assistance, spanning the likes of John Lindsey’s New York Mayor's Office, to working as an extremely successful and influential Credit Assistant for GE, helping create and fine tune their financial infrastructure. Ben and Dana were recognized entertainers, ceaselessly lining display cabinets, shelves, and their tables, with the finest of China, the most magnificent of stemware, and striking table settings. With the food and drink being no less refined or complex, the McLaurin personality was allowed to shine through, one of humor, compassion, intelligence, and sophistication. As one purveys the rooms and hallways of this estate, one cannot help but feel as if they are taking a walk through African-American history, and have the ability to take some home with them.
