Historic Jewish Atlanta Tours - Grant Park

Experience Jewish History in Atlanta at Its Source!

Join us at our latest Jewish Atlanta Tour destination at Grant Park and take a walk through its living history! Grant Park was given to the city in 1882 by entrepreneur Lemuel P. Grant. With a beautiful lake, numerous springs, and even an amusement area, the park quickly became a favorite spot among Atlantans. In the early 20th century this city landmark was surrounded by one of the most eclectic and diverse neighborhoods around the city, and the center of a thriving Jewish community.

Meet at the Atlanta Preservation Center, located at 327 Saint Paul Ave SE, Atlanta, Georgia 30312.

The Grant Park tour begins at 10:00 AM.

This tour is FREE.

Registration will open a month before the event date.

This program is presented as part of the Phoenix Flies, a celebration of Atlanta’s Historical Buildings.
