Cherokee Garden Library
Saturday, Mar 2 2024 @ 11am

Phoenix Flies: A Celebration of Atlanta’s Historic Sites provides an opportunity to learn about, celebrate, and strengthen Atlanta’s historic and cultural assets. Created in 2003 by the Atlanta Preservation Center, Phoenix Flies celebrates the anniversary of the dramatic rescue of the Fox Theater, an event that permanently shaped Atlanta’s preservation ethos.

Whether it’s a vintage Hastings’ Seed Catalog, an old postcard of Ansley Park, an early 20th-century garden photograph, or a rare 18th-century volume with stunning hand-colored botanical plates, the remarkable gems of the Cherokee Garden Library tell the diverse and meaningful stories of the people and plants that have shaped our land in Atlanta and beyond. Tour guided by the Cherokee Garden Library Director.  

Tour is limited to 15 people; we will be walking/standing most of the tour, so please wear comfortable shoes. Check in at Kenan Research Center, McElreath Hall 10 minutes prior to tour time.

This tour is free, however,  registration is required.
