Join Connor Lee of History Atlanta as he discusses the history of the Constitution Lakes Park as you walk along the Rail Ridge Trail.  Constitution Lakes Park is the site of an abondoned late 19th Century brickworks; the lakes are actually flooded clay pits dug by the South River Brick Company.  A few of the subjects touched upon will be Native American history, convict lease labor history, Atlanta brickmaking history and more.  At the Dolls Head Trail we will be joined by Joel Slaton, creator of the neo-folk artwork that gives the distinctive Dolls Head Trail its name.  The South River regularly floods this area and the leftover debris supplies Slaton the materials to create insitu artwork.  Visitors are encouraged to do the same. 

This tour requires the ability to walk two miles.
