The 14 founders of the Atlanta History Center could not have envisioned what impact they would have on the future when in 1926 they formed what was then known as the Atlanta Historical Society.
Beginning as a group of civic-minded Atlantans - led by prominent attorney Walter McElreath and meeting in each other's homes, collecting early manuscripts and photos, and publishing research bulletins to "arouse in the citizens and friends of Atlanta an interest in history" - it has turned into a primary source of Atlanta, regional, and national history.
In 1990, the Historical Society and all its holdings became known as the Atlanta History Center. 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.
