The Georgia Trust invites you to the Southwest Atlanta Expedition, where you'll discover Atlanta's lesser-known historic neighborhoods and an array of private homes and historic sites during a day-long, self-guided tour.

These up-and-coming neighborhoods played a crucial role in the Civil Rights Movement and are experiencing a rebirth with the development of the BeltLine and the efforts of preservation-minded individuals. An array of historic homes and public buildings await your discovery in Adair Park, West End, Capitol View Manor and Adams Park. The architecture of these communities mirrors that found in Atlanta's Morningside, Virginia-Highland, and Inman Park neighborhoods, to name a few.

Start your day with a tour of the historic Clark Atlanta University campus. Explore impressive house museums including the Herndon Home, former home of Atlanta's first black millionaire. Tour a diverse array of private homes ranging from beautifully restored bungalows and quaint craftsman homes to those beginning the rehabilitation process. You won't want to miss a closing reception at the Wren's Nest, a grand 1868 Victorian house that was once home to noted writer and folklorist Joel Chandler Harris. Whether you are an Atlanta native or visiting from around the state, the Expedition will expose you to the rich culture and heritage of Atlanta, highlighted in these undiscovered neighborhoods.

What is an Expedition?
A Georgia Trust Expedition invites members and guests to explore a Georgia town located off the beaten path. These day-long, self guided tours are designed to reflect a town's unique history and development by including a variety of historic sites, from vernacular homesteads to historic industrial sites to grand homes, as well as historic landscapes and natural features. Expeditions educate participants about Georgia's small town heritage while celebrating ongoing preservation and revitalization efforts.

Tours are self-guided, and guests provide their own transportation. Maps and programs are provided at packet pick-up.
