  • Atlanta History CenterAtlanta History Center Atlanta, Georgia
    The Atlanta History Center is in the Buckhead district of Atlanta, Georgia and has become one of the most prominent history museums in the nation. There are historical homes and gardens that also can be found here, which is why it is called a center and not museum; it is more. The Kenan Research Center contains 3.5 million resources and a perfect reproduction of historian Franklin Garrett's office; who was 94 when he passed on in 2000. It also houses one of the most significant and biggest collections of civil war relics in the world, and the Swan house and Tullie Smith farm have been relocated to the center's grounds. The center manages three types of exhibits; permanent, temporary and traveling, with 6 permanent exhibits here. These include; the Centennial Olympic Museum which is composed of two areas; the upper Sports Lab, which you take an elevator to get to, and has equipment that lets you test yourself against the Olympic records; and a main area containing the artifacts, films, information and interactives. One of the major attractions includes a 12 part test, on your knowledge of the Olympics and afterwards posts your score; the Turning Point: the American Civil War exhibition that contains 1400 of the city's history center's huge collection of Civil War relics; the Metropolitan Frontiers display chronicles the city's expansion from farm to city in 4 stages; the Shaping Traditions: Folk Arts in a Changing South, which showcases the developments and attributes of the south's folk art; the Down the Fairway with Bobby Jones exhibit that tells of the state's most famous golfer and the Phillip Trammell Shutze: Atlanta Classicist, connoisseur and collector.  The current temporary exhibits include; the Ink to Paper exhibit that details the methods to bring print to pictures; and the Courage: the Vision to End Segregation, the Guts to Fight for It unfolds the truth behind the Brown vs. Board of Education case that desegregated schools in this nation. The Tullie Smith House is an antebellum farmhouse that was constructed by the Robert Smith family and has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This fine old structure was part of a farm in Dekalb County that had 11 slaves and sat on 200 gorgeous acres. The entirety was moved to the Atlanta History Center in 1969, with farm house, numerous gardens, smokehouse, kitchen, barn, blacksmith shop, double corncrib and log cabin. The barn even has animals that you would find on a farm inside for the enjoyment of the children that come here to visit. The Victorian and Lee playhouses are really miniatures, and the Swan house was designed by Phillip Trammell Shutze in the 1920s, named thus because of its many swan designs and surrounded by the Boxwood Garden, that was copied from Italian gardens the way they looked in the 18th century England. The front landscape, two cloverleaf fountains and terraced lawn just happens to be one of the most photographed sights in the country. The center owns the renovated Margaret Mitchell House and Museum; where Margaret lived from 1925 until 1932 when she wrote Gone With the Wind. The home includes the movie museum, the reconstructed apartment #1 where she lived, changing displays and the literary center.

  • Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic SiteMartin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site Atlanta, Georgia
    Abraham, Martin and John; we all know who they were and what they did for this country and the people that loved them. The Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site was begun in 1980, and contains numerous buildings that were part of Martin's boyhood here on Auburn Avenue in the Sweet Auburn historic district of Atlanta, Georgia; that include the Ebenezer Baptist Church, where Martin Jr. and Sr. shepherded their flock through the difficulties of being black in a white America. These magnificent monuments are part of the critical components of Martin Jr.'s life and his legacy as leader of the American civil rights movement. The entire site consists of 35 acres and the buildings that lie within it. The visitor center houses a museum that chronicles the movement that somehow parallels the path of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., fire station number 6, which was built in 1894, and served the district with distinction until 1991; now housing a gift shop and exhibit on desegregation in the Atlanta Fire Department. Also located there is the "I have a Dream" International World Peace Rose Garden" and a memorial tribute to Mohandas K. Ghandi. The "International Civil Rights Walk of Fame is here, that gives a well deserved recognition to all those brave pioneers who sacrificed and "slaved" to make equality for all a reality, and not a dream any longer.
