It's National Have a Coke Day! To celebrate we are highlighting the history of the Dixie Coca-Cola Bottling Company Plant. Located on the southeast corner of Edgewood Avenue and Courtland Street. The small, two-story Victorian commercial building was the site of the first Coca-Cola bottling plant in Georgia. It was here that the franchise concept was first applied to the soft drink industry. So open a can or bottle of the refreshing beverage and share it with your loved ones.

Historic Atlanta
The recently proposed North Boulevard Park-Southeast Historic District is composed of a portion of the subdivision by that name whose picturesque curvilinear streets were laid out in the 1910s on the east side of Piedmont Park. The proposed district included 2 historic brick streets, Cooledge and Cresthill, a rarity in Atlanta! Historic district designation at the City level is a way neighborhoods can plan for future growth and ensure that development pressures do not mean sacrificing the unique, historic, character of our city. #historicdistrict #saveatl #historicatlanta #virginiahighland @npuatlanta #cityplanning ...

Did you know that over the last few decades, Atlanta has been ranked one of the most important immigrant gateways in the United States? Atlanta is also home to the fastest growing Latinx population in the country and can claim several of the country's largest south, southeast, and east Asian communities. From the City's early 20th Century Jewish and Greek immigrants, to the Chinese immigrants who have called Atlanta home since the 1960s, and the LatinX immigrants of the late 20th Century, Atlanta has a rich history of immigration and yet there are NO historic sites recognized for their contribution to this important part of our heritage.We need your help to identify and protect the places important to the history of these communities. If you would like to be a part of an advisory committee for Historic Atlanta, please follow this link and fill out a volunteer form. historicatlanta.org/engage/volunteer/*Data is from the Pew Research Center and ARC.

We didn’t either - that’s why we’re working with Little 5 Points Alliance to document this important history and explore next steps on the journey to keep Little 5 Points Weird.
