On the 21st day of July 1909, by and between John P. Pettyjohn & Company of Lynchburg, Virginia and The Southern Railway Company to build a Combination Depot at Norcross in the State of Georgia, for the sum total amount of Four Thousan, Seven Hundred Fifty ($4750.00) Dollars. Eventually the Southern Railway depot was donated to the city by Norfolk Southern in 1983. Now she serves as a restaurant with lots of great food, service and lovely decor. Lots of historic photographs cover the walls. So stop in and say hi!

If you ever get bord with Atlanta, the little community of Norcross is just next door. They have a charming town. The Gwinnett County Fire Station No. 1 in downtown Norcross marks the location of Gwinnett’s first fire station and includes a fire museum building displaying fire services memorabilia Stone and brick veneer colors and accent details on these two structures are reminiscent of railroad stations and the rich history. It was not open that day, but your welcome to look inside from the windows and see some really wonderful historic fire trucks.

Even though free breakfasts are to be had at most of the business hotels nowadays, its good to take a break from the same old, same old. Thus on my most recent business trip down to Atlanta I took an early morning walk through the Georgia Tech campus and near the other side from where I was staying I checked out Octane Coffee.
I had a nice conversation with the barista, Dustin who explained the Octane Coffee concept of fresh beans, never mixed, french pressed coffee. My cup of coffee took several minutes to prepare and at $3.75 was very reasonably priced compared to the Big Boy national chains. This along with a fresh made moist bran/zucchini muffin and I was ready for another day of work.
Have a couple of pictures to share, but I need to find the cord for my camera in order to download.

Open all year, the State Farmers Market is in Forest Park, just south of the airport. Anything grown in Georgia is in one area, you just drive down the rows of sellers and stop to look at something good! There are also plants, and Thomas' Restaurant serves fresh cooked veggies with the meals.....

Prince Charles was one who financed the making of this statue on Peachtree Road to honor the world's athletes, but it turned out that immediately after its completion, the Princess died, and the monument turned into a sort of a shrine for her devotees, getting covered in flowers and such for weeks. It is hard to actually get to, being on a small triangle of grass near an expressway on-ramp but you can see it driving past anyways...

The building was built in 1904 by the business partner of my great grandfather, J.J.Haverty---I heard that Amos Rhodes brought all the stonework from England and had this castle rebuilt right on Peachtree Road where it is today. Great place for events, corporate or social, you can take a tour and they usually have a pretty good Halloween House set up here to scare folks!
The upper floors house the Georgia Trust Foundation offices.

The skyline of downtown, I always thought was impressive. They continue to expand it, but also renovate the old structures. One stand out is the Bank of America building right in the middle. Take the attached video view presented and you will see what I mean. I first came here 1974 and there was not much then to show off. Only the old Regency, with its circular tower hotel. Now it is very much different and new, progressive, and modern.
From downtown you can see the whole panorama as well as all the way over to Stone Mountain, probably 10-12 miles away.

Nicholas Snider, a common person, started the idea to have a museum for patriotism and stimulate the people. It opened in Atlanta in 2004. He believed that the people need a place to introduce their heirs to our country and be loyal. It has memorabilia of the Olympics held here in 1996. It also has a lot of other displays of USA symbols, founding and history.
It is located right by Centennial Park area

This is a world class organization---my son and I have both participated in Fletcher Wolfe's choir for boys (before they lose their high voices)----Mr Wolfe just re-took over the choir after a lapse---if they are singing and you are a fan of good music, definitely this should be on your list to see------When My son was in the choir, they sang for the Pope, visited Medici, Italy, and also went to Moscow for a concert.
Very much recommended....
Their website says they are now auditioning ages 6-13 for the new season!
