East Atlanta History Celebration says
Come celebrate East Atlanta's history and the opportunities it offers for the future!

The East Atlanta Community Association is sponsoring the completion of a draft National Register of Historic Places nomination for East Atlanta, and work on the draft this spring has been completed by Georgia State University graduate students. At this event, we'll be showcasing that work for the first time!

We invite the public to join us to discover East Atlanta's history, and hear from the students who have been researching it- we'll examine photographs, newspaper articles, maps, and more from East Atlanta's past. Maybe you'll even catch a glimpse of your street, house, or business from the past!

You'll also have the opportunity to learn more about the what the National Register is, and what a potential nomination means for the neighborhood of East Atlanta.

If you have documentation or information to share about the development of or life in the neighborhood before the 1970s, please feel free to bring it to this event, or contact Stephanie L. Cherry-Farmer at stephanie.cherry@gmail.com or (609) 203-2285.

We look forward to celebrating our community's rich history with you! Sincere thanks to Argosy for graciously hosting!
