Ms. Fanny Williams, the namesake of Aunt Fanny's Cabin, was an African American woman who was born circa 1860 (there is no record of her birth). In the 1880s she went to work for the family of Orme Campbell as a nursemaid and cook. She was with the Campbells for many years during which time she acquired the nickname "Aunt Fanny". Her cabin was on the restaurant property. The rustic Atlanta area restaurant served authentic Southern-style food, which is America's oldest recognized cuisine. During its day, it was extremely popular and considered quite expensive. It was expanded several times over the years and eventually seated 800 customers.
