Atlanta History Center

The Atlanta History Center’s mission is to inspire people to connect to the past so they may better understand the present and prepare for the future. Formed in 1926 as the Atlanta Historical Society, the Center has turned into a primary source of Atlanta, regional and national history. Today, the History Center is located on 33 acres in the heart of Atlanta’s Buckhead district and includes: one of the Southeast’s largest history museums; a research library and archives that annually serves more than 10,000 patrons; two historic houses illustrating over a century of Atlanta’s history; a two-acre midtown campus which houses the Margaret Mitchell House & Museum; and a series of gardens unique in both design and horticultural presentation in the metropolitan area.
