Flashlight Tour: Georgia Tech and Oakland Cemetery

November 1, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Kick off Georgia Tech’s Homecoming weekend with a sunset tour that explores the history of a humble trade school that became a nationally-ranked institute, a transformation that forever changed Atlanta and the South. Names like Henry Grady, Sam Inman, and Ivan Allen echo how the story of Atlanta has been intertwined and reflected in the history of Georgia Tech. Along the way, hear a little about the first glory days of Tech football, the RAT cap tradition and Margaret Mitchell’s match-making advice for Tech students.


Non-members $18
HOF Members: $10

Your ticket includes a flashlight and a complimentary drink. The bar will open at 5:30 and close right before the tour at 6:15. Tour capacity is limited. 

Note: Not all areas of Historic Oakland Cemetery are wheelchair accessible. Please use your discretion when planning your tour visit. Contact Marcy Breffle at with questions or concerns about accessibility. We will do our best to accommodate all visitors and their needs.
