The Early Edgewood-Candler Park BiRacial History Project is partnering again this March with the Atlanta Preservation Center to offer free Walking & Bike Tours during the Phoenix Flies month-long celebration of greater-Atlanta’s historic sites.
Our guided tours visit 1870s – 1980s African American legacy sites in Candler Park. Reservations are required; call 404-577-2553 (limited to 20 guests).
Walking Tours are scheduled for Wednesday March 11, 11am-12:30pm and Saturday March 14, 1pm-2:30pm.
Bike Tour with Civil Bikes is on Saturday March 7, 11am-1:30pm. Bring your own bike.
All tours begin at the 100 year-old Old Stone Church/First Existentialist Congregation at 470 Candler Park Drive NE, Atlanta GA 30307. Free parking is available on Candler Park Drive.
Tours are appropriate for children 10 and older; but we regret, not universally accessible due to uneven terrain. Tours will be cancelled during inclement weather.
Our mission supports community-based education and restorative justice work in the Early Edgewood-Candler Park neighborhood, respectfully reconnecting descendent stakeholders and today’s citizens with this historic African American community.
