This week I want to share a conversation I had with author Mark Pifer about his new book: Hidden History of Old Atlanta. While this new book covers so much, I asked him specifically about the period between the removal of the Creek and Muskogee and the formal establishment of Atlanta in 1847. We talked about the formation of the railroads, the moving of the Zero Mile Marker a mere 1200 feet, Wilson Lumpkin, how Marthasville got named, why it changed to Atlanta, and why downtown’s street grid is the way that it is.
