Connor Brown
Scavenger Hunt

Inspired by and in memory of a local boy, Connor Brown, who loved to play on our campus for hours on end, we invite you to bring your little ones to Atlanta History Center to play—in our museum, historic houses, and gardens. We hope you enjoy stretching your legs, having fun, and making memories with your little ones.
