A service organization employee told Athens police that antiques valued at nearly $30,000 are missing from the historic Taylor-Grady house.

An employee of the Junior League of Athens told police that Junior League volunteers took the antiques for safekeeping during renovations of the home in recent years, but several expensive items were never returned.

The Athens Banner-Herald reports that the missing antiques include a crystal vase and bowl, a Caucasian rug, a bullseye mirror and an oil painting.

The Taylor-Grady House was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1976. It was once the home of Henry W. Grady, and is the only home of the former Atlanta newspaper editor that still stands.
