In 1909, Asa Candler, Jr bought 290 acres of land south of Downtown, with the intention of building a racetrack.

In 1925, the City of Atlanta leased the land for a municipal airport, buying it in 1928. This week, I am covering all the things Atlanta airport - how did it expand, who was it named for, historic terminal buildings and everything in between.
