Georgia:
Atlanta

Atlanta is the capital city of Georgia. It was founded in 1837 as a Terminus settlement for the Western and Atlantic Railroads. It was named Atlanta and incorporated as a town in 1847.
The state capital was moved to Atlanta in 1868.

We visited Atlanta on October 27, 2016 on our
way back home after seeing our friends in Florida.
Some photos were taken by Mike Vainchtein in July 2005. They are marked in the caption.
