Walk through Atlanta's history from the antebellum Grant Mansion and Confederate fortifications to the Victorian era and present day in Grant Park. The park, the centerpiece of this revitalized neighborhood, was given to the city in 1883 by entrepreneur Lemuel P. Grant and quickly became a favorite spot because of its beautiful lake, numerous springs and amusement area. It is now home to the Atlanta Cyclorama and Zoo Atlanta.
