3. History

Atlanta is one of the South’s most historic city’s. From Civil War Memorials, to old 19th century architecture, the city is a historian’s dream. That’s why developers are taking pains to preserve that heritage while giving historical–but dilapidated–buildings new identities in the modern age. Ponce City Market is a prime example of this, as is the Masquerade, a popular indoor-outdoor music venue that occupies the old Dupre Excelsior Mill complex. Get a taste of what the neighborhood looked like before gentrification began in full force by touring any one of the area’s many Historic Districts.
