Art exhibit leaves unforgettable impression of city’s rich history
ATLANTA – Have you ever wished you could turn back the hands of time? Well, travelers at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport now can explore eight time frames of Atlanta’s past in “A Walk Through Atlanta History,” a unique, multimedia exhibit in the Transportation Mall between concourses B and C.
Aviation officials held a ceremony to dedicate the exhibit, which highlights several prominent Atlantans -including Alonzo Herndon-who played important roles in shaping the city’s history. The exhibit features large wall murals, brief videos and reader rails that highlight key periods, milestones and events.
“Hartsfield-Jackson is proud to present this visual time capsule to the world,” said Aviation General Manager Louis Miller. “It allows travelers and art enthusiasts to trace Atlanta’s history from its humble beginnings to its emergence as an international city.”
The exhibit covers eight time frames: the pre-Colonial era through 1840; the first train stop in Atlanta; the Civil War and the Battle of Atlanta; Reconstruction and the rebuilding of Atlanta into a commerce hub; the rise of the Sweet Auburn district; Mayor William B. Hartsfield’s achievements; Jim Crow and the civil rights movement; and Atlanta’s entry onto the global stage.
Filmmaker and exhibit creator Gary Moss envisioned an enjoyable, educational experience for people of all ages.
“I was surprised to find a story as rich, poignant and ultimately inspiring as anything that I had traveled far to find,” Moss said.
“It’s undeniable that ‘A Walk Through Atlanta History’ has transformed an ordinary corridor traveled by thousands of passengers each day into a historical, storytelling museum,” Miller said. “I believe this is one of the best airport art exhibits that travelers will discover.”

The Annual Agent Training Seminars was held on September 23-26 in Washington D.C. ‘ATS’ is a national event and has become the second largest annual gathering of State Farm agents. Adam had the pleasure to present on the main stage discussing his success tips for Financial Services and its positive impact on the community. Reflecting on his time at the conference, Adam shares, “I had a great time presenting, networking and spending quality time with old and new friends at the ATS Conference last week. Motivated to continue our legacy building and sharing my journey. Very blessed to have been given the platform to share my experiences to the 450+ in attendance.”
The success of the tournament helped the Non-Profit Foundation reach and serve more youth through its mentoring program that gives back to the community by showing youth that they can achieve any dream imaginable through hard work, discipline and perseverance. “We were truly excited by the enthusiasm for our inaugural event, which we believe stays true to the spirit of the youth, yet with a ‘grown-up’ flair,” explains Adam Herndon.
