Taking You Places You've Never Been Before


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


CIRCA LogoWe see sites both before renovation begins and after the final touches have been completed.

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!

Please join us for CIRCA’s year-end / holiday meeting on Saturday, December 13 from 2-4 pm at Stone Mountain’s ART Station (http://www.artstation.org/).  Erin Bailey, Education Manager for SMart, Inc., the micro-enterprise arts incubator project powered by ART Station, will be on hand to answer questions and give a brief tour.  Driving directions follow below.

If you’d like to make a full day of your visit to the Stone Mountain Village, a daytime Home Tour and an evening theatrical performance will also be on December 13. 

The annual Woman's Club Tour of Homes features five houses in the area. These are not quite within walking distance of ART Station but are nearby. The tour runs from 10 am to 4 pm.  The $25 cost includes lunch. Tickets are available at ART Station.

If you’d like to stay in town after your event, consider visiting the art galleries on Main Street, dining and then attending an 8 pm performance of A Christmas Survival Guide in the ART Station theatre. This light-hearted musical will be filled with comedy and traditional songs of the season.
