“Outside the Cemetery Gates” Walking Tour
A Partnership Between Inherit Georgia and Historic Atlanta
Thursday, October 4, 2018
6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
In the shadow of the Gold Dome, nestled between Downtown Atlanta, Grant Park, the Old 4th Ward, and Oakland Cemetery lie Atlanta’s Oakland and Capitol Gateway neighborhoods. Before the Civil War, the area’s close proximity to the historic Georgia Railroad attracted industry and a workforce in need of housing. By the turn of the 20th Century, a community of warehouses, manufacturing centers, and residential dwellings filled these blocks along the tracks. We’ll start at the base of the King Memorial MARTA station. From there we’ll see 19th- and 20th-century industrial buildings, figure out what the Corey Tower is all about, discover the neighborhood’s hidden house, discuss the area’s links to Atlanta’s early Jewish and Syrian/Lebanese immigrant history, and follow the tracks of a governor’s funeral procession into the cemetery gates. We’ll also talk about the neighborhood’s recent past as a center of Atlanta’s underground art and music scenes and its future as the city develops the Memorial Greenway. This hour-long walk will cover just over a mile through an urban environment.
“Outside the Cemetery Gates” is presented by Scott Morris, a professional historian, native Atlantan, and founding member of Historic Atlanta. Mr. Morris earned a Master of Heritage Preservation degree from Georgia State University in 2017 and has over a decade of experience working in archaeology, history, and related fields.
Historic Atlanta, Inc.is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and advocating for the thoughtful reuse of Atlanta’s historic resources. Learn more on their website or follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
