Stories of Atlanta

You Might Be Surprised to Learn Who Is Where

With all of the books, documentaries and tours, you would think that there was nothing new to be learned about the final resting place of Atlanta’s notable citizens. But if you happen to be a regular viewer of our stories, you already know that there is always more to the story.

When you think about it, there is just no way, in a city the size of Atlanta, that the final chapters of Atlanta’s most well-known citizens could be summed up in one neat, little package. And while we, of course, cannot speak with certainty to the more ethereal aspects of the afterlife of Atlanta’s citizenry, we can offer insight into the final disposition of the earthly remains of those who left a significant mark on our city.

Forget what you think you know, set aside the concept that one size fits all and be prepared to learn something new from this week’s Stories of Atlanta.

    A great sketch about a familiar place. Have a set of grandparents interred there. Their resting place is about 90 paces from the gravesite of one of those early ‘tycoons’ noted……Asa Griggs Candler. A former mayor of Atlanta who was probably better known for Candler Field ….forerunner of the world’s busiest airport….and for starting the company that would eventually provide the planet with “the pause that refreshes”.Report
