Happy Labor Day

In Chicago one prominent industrialist had devised a creative plan to keep his business operating and his employees working during these difficult times. His name was George Pullman. He had built one of the premier manufacturing companies in the nation – The Palace Car Company. Pullman had built an entire self-sustaining town around his railroad car factory. (He named it Pullman!)


Give Youth a Chance to Explore

“Gross, I will never swim in that lake,” one camper said. The other campers from Historic South Atlanta nodded. Despite the campers’ differing ages, personalities, and experiences, they all agreed the lake was vile.

Each year, we take the South Atlanta Youth group to a sleepaway camp.
