Come out and explore the most diverse square mile in America—Clarkston! In August, we’re heading to the Clarkston Community Center to learn more about the unique history and culture of the area. Known by many names and nicknames during its history, including New Siding and Angora Heights (referring to angora goats kept by residents in the early 1900s), Clarkston was one of the first suburban communities in the South.
Beginning in the 1990s, Clarkston became a common destination for refugee resettlement. With over 50 countries across 6 continents represented, the City proudly proclaims itself “the Ellis Island of the South.”
As always, Party with the Past is free for you and me! We just need you to RSVP to let us know you're coming. Food and drink will be available for purchase.
Party With the Past is a FREE program connecting young ATLiens to the historic locations around them (and the cold brews they crave). Come explore Atlanta's past and build a stronger community for the future.
