Link Layers of Atlanta's History

Memorial Corridor

The APC is adding the Memorial Corridor to its Most Endangered Historic Places List. This traffic corridor connects the downtown area south of the Capitol to Atlanta's east side, passing through layers of historic assets that vary from antebellum Oakland Cemetery, to turn of the century Grant Park and Cabbagetown neighborhoods, to mid-century modern assets. It is a place where neighborhoods, commerical areas and industrial buildings meet, a road that connects the inner city to the suburbs and incorporates mid-century school, dairies, office buildings and gas stations.
The portion of the Memorial Corridor that is of concern to the Atlanta Preservation Center begins at the previously listed (2011) Georgia State Archives building, proceeds east and covers Memorial Drive and the intersecting streets to the Moreland/Memorial intersection.
