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 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 13, 11am-12:30pm and Saturday March 16, 1pm-2:23pm.
Bike Tours with Civil Bikes are on Wednesday March 13, 12:30pm-2pm and Saturday March 16, 12:30pm-2pm. Bring your own bike.
All tours begin at the 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 rough 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.
