|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on May 24, 2020 at 6:30 pm

This tour begins and ends with a murder. In the early hours of April 27, 1913, the body of 13-year-old Mary Phagan was discovered in the basement of Atlanta’s National Pencil Factory. Leo Frank, the factory superintendent and a Jewish man from New York, was accused of the heinous crime and tried on evidence that was questionable at best. Class tensions, anti-Semitism, and mob violence all played a role in the trial and events that followed, which rank among the most tragic and unforgettable in Atlanta’s history.

Learn how several Oakland residents were involved in the infamous event during this thought-provoking tour.
