Atlanta lawn care services

One of the ten largest U.S. urban centers, Atlanta, GA has a skyline of architectural beauties and is home to a myriad of nationally and internationally famous landmarks. You'll find the largest indoor aquarium in the world on Baker Street NW with 10 million gallons of salt and seawater and over 100,000 animals. Head over to Northside Drive where the Mercedes-Benz stadium shines like a new gem. Completed in 2016, this ultra-modern sports and entertainment area with retractable-roof is now home to Super Bowl LII.


The city's oldest standing structure, the 11-story Flatiron building was built in 1897. One of the newest is the internationally-styled SunTrust Plaza with its iconic geometric glass cubes. From the skyscrapers lining Peachtree Street to the sprawling metro area, Atlanta belies the forecast of its earliest settlers. Stephen Long, Chief Engineer of the Western & Atlantic Railroad that put Atlanta on the map, had low expectations for the settlement known as Terminus. In 1837 he wrote, "It will be a good location for one tavern, a blacksmith shop, a grocery store, and nothing else." He turned down the opportunity to purchase land in the settlement. How did he go so wrong? A few turning points in time explain how a crossroads village turned into the intertwining interchanges of Spaghetti Junction and the world's busiest airport.


The story of Atlanta began in the 1800s when railroads gave it birth. At the same time, the last of the area's native habitats were swept away. At the turn of the 19th century, what is now the Atlanta metro area was occupied by two Native American tribes. The Creeks claimed the land south and east, and the Cherokees governed land to the north and into the Southern Appalachians. By the 1820s, both tribes had been forced to cede their territory to the state. It's a sad part of the story, one that led to the infamous Trail of Tears. Thankfully, Georgians atoned for their wrong-doings as time went on. Today, the descendants of those Native Americans are eligible for many government benefits including healthcare, scholarships, grants, even cash-payouts from gaming establishments.


The next few decades brought growth as the lines from Macon and Augusta joined the junction. Terminus became Marthasville, and finally, Atlanta. Her story moved along well until the Civil War of 1864. By then, the area had become a center for war industries and distribution. Union troops conquered the young city and burned it to the ground. The era became the basis for Margaret Mitchell's' Gone With the Wind, one of the greatest historical novels of all time. It reflected the spirit of the survivors as Scarlett O'Hara proclaimed, "as God as my witness, I will never go hungry again." But the enemy of the people became the city's second salvation. Atlanta was declared headquarters of the Third Military District by the federal occupation. It was here people came to pick up the pieces and get help to grow a great city.


Becoming a college town after the Civil War was another stepping stone for Atlanta's future. Atlanta University, founded by the American Missionary Association opened their doors to educate former slaves. In 1888 the Georgia Institute of Technology led the way to a vision of the city to become the Industrial Capital of the New South. Today there are at least 57 colleges and universities located in the Atlanta metro area. The late 1800s also brought a new major business to Atlanta. In 1886, pharmacist John Smith Pemberton concocted a batch of a drink called Coca Cola. The product went national in the early 1900s, and a banker led a syndicate to produce it globally. The whole story of Coca Cola is chronicled today in Coca Cola World, a charming museum downtown.


The struggle for civil rights became an important part of Atlanta's history. In 1895, the city staged a fair called the Cotton States and International Exposition. Booker T. Washington, who led the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama urged African Americans to learn a trade rather than spending time on social and political equality. He was criticized and accused of being an accommodationist. Some referred to the speech as "the Atlanta Compromise." The NAACP was founded to pioneer an activist mindset for civil rights. Atlanta became an African-American intellectual capital.


In later years, the city graciously made peace between the races by embracing the Civil Rights Act of 1964. In early April of 1968, they laid their native son, Martin Luther King, Jr. to rest with a heavy heart. Born in Atlanta on January 15, 1929 King was one of the most notable political influencers from Georgia. Only Jimmy Carter, a peanut farmer from South Georgia would come close when he was elected president of the United States in 1976. Today, both men are honored, as MLK's birthplace is now a museum and the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library houses materials related to the Carter Administration.


The year 1990 ushered in an opportunity for Atlanta to become a truly cosmopolitan city when the announcement came that the city would host the 1996 Olympics. On Sept. 24 of that year, celebrators proudly marched down Peachtree street carrying Olympic flags. The city was now indeed a part of the global world, a fact that would no doubt have shocked Stephen Long.
