The Atlanta Preservation Center sponsors this annual program that includes more than 230 events and nearly 100 sites throughout the city, including guided tours, lectures, and open houses. Best of all, it’s FREE! There are so many great events during this celebration that it’s hard to choose. Many of the events are more adult oriented, but there are some events suitable for older children as well.
Older children may enjoy a guided tour of the Wren’s Nest, the home of Brer Rabbit author Joel Candler Harris, or a guided tour of Fire Station #19. Tweens and teens may be interested in learning more about the Battle of Atlanta during the Civil War or a guided tour of the Margaret Mitchell House.
Some of the tours require reservations and many of the children’s programs have limited availability, so check the Phoenix Flies website for activities, date and time, and whether or not you need reservations.
