Walking along its narrow European-like streets and viewing unique forms of architecture that contribute so greatly to the neighborhood’s character;
Engaging with locally owned and family-run businesses along its 130-plus-year-old commercial center; and
Learning about the Fulton Cotton Mill and bearing witness to its place in Atlanta’s complex social, economic, and cultural web in the 19th and 20th Centuries
