A History of Kirkwood, Atlanta, GA, Event
There will be a "Lunch & Learn Lecture" sponsored by the DeKalb History Center on July 28th from noon until 1pm at the Old Courthouse on the square in Decatur. The event is free, but bring your own lunch.
The presentation by Joe Alcock, will explain how Kirkwood, once a booming little city, was destined to compete with its neighbor to the east. It was a railroad hub, a center for industry and a thriving residential community. He will cover its early history, the devastation from the Civil War, a rocky incorporation, the leadership that brought it into existence and its fall from memory. Joe will also address the initial and progressive plans for its urban infrastructure and development patterns from 1900. He will conclude with present planning and preservation efforts.
ENJOY YOUR DAY!
