This is the current home of The Literary Center, but in the 1920s author Margaret Mitchell lived here. Today the Center hosts and promotes very diverse contemporary writers including Alice Walker, Pat Conroy, Tom Wolfe, Jon Meacham, and Marilynne Robinson. Also offered are numerous writing workshops for adults and young students.
Additionally, the site serves as the midtown campus of the Atlanta History Center and it has recently been modified to offer visitors a more historically accurate experience. One change included moving a fence that previously blocked this side of the building. Next time you are in the neighborhood, stop by and explore the 21st century happenings.
