Maybe not what he had in mind
Atlanta’s history is intertwined with Atlanta’s religion. Houses of worship were not just a presence in Atlanta, they were one of the major forces that helped shape and support our community.
This week, we tell the tale of Leonard Broughton who came to Atlanta to lead a church and ended up building one of Atlanta’s still-standing historical structures. Each year, Broughton’s church hosts thousands of visitors of all denominations and beliefs. Chances are, you’ve probably been there yourself. If you’re not sure, it might be because you know the church by a different name, which we reveal in this week’s Stories of Atlanta.
