Taking You Places You've Never Been Before

CIRCA

CIRCA is an auxiliary educational group of APC that offers monthly behind-the-scenes tours of select historic sites in Atlanta and nearby areas.

Usually scheduled for the second Tuesday evening of the month March through December, CIRCA will take you places you’ve never been before.  Come explore with us!
