Make your way through history

History Center

Location: Atlanta History Center

Date taken: January 8, 2013

The sounds of Celine Dion’s “Power of the Dream” fill the Olympic exhibit room at the Atlanta History Center. If you were in Atlanta in 1996 for the Olympic Games, the music and all the memorabilia, including street banners, autographed equipment, uniforms and collectible pins, might take you on a trip down memory lane. Has it really been 16 years? The exhibit is just one of several permanent ones at the city’s primary history center, which is tucked away on West Paces Ferry Road and down the street from the governor’s mansion. If you are in the mood for a traditional museum tour … check out the exhibits on the history of Atlanta, golfer Bobby Jones, the Civil War and Southern folk art. On Tuesday evenings in January, the museum is open for free from 5:30-8:30 p.m.

  1. Well said. Brings back the memories of covering the Olympics as a reporter for The Macon Telegraph. Got to work in the Knight-Ridder Olympic bureau alongside the likes of Dave Barry and Mitch Albom.
