Georgia Historical Society takes more inclusive view of its historic markers
Waffle House, founded on Labor Day, 1955, celebrated another chapter in its history on Saturday, Sept. 8 with the unveiling of a new historic marker at its very first restaurant — located in Avondale.
On Saturday, Sept. 15, another historical marker will be unveiled at the site of the Second Atlanta International Pop Festival, which took place in 1970 in a musical extravaganza that was Georgia’s version of Woodstock.
What do these two events have in common? Both signs represent an expanded approach to the historical marker program now being run by the Georgia Historical Society.
