Decatur Square Monuments: What Do Those Relics Mean Anyway?

Walking Tour with History Afoot Atlanta

Join History Afoot Atlanta for this special DHC Partnered Tour on the monuments in Decatur square.

We all save relics of the past. For some families, an attic becomes the place to save items that reflect their history. As a community, we sometimes preserve these relics as monuments. Join us in Decatur Square to explore the Historic DeKalb courthouse lawn and think about monument making in the US. 

We will consider how different kinds of monuments were created and the changing pattern of monument creation over the last 100 years. In an exploration of Decatur Square, we will see what we find and consider the layers of meaning in the assortment of relics you can find there.
