Nightfall Chronicles: 50 Ways to Die

October 3 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Nightfall Chronicles is a sunset tour series featuring Oakland’s popular walking tours.

Early Atlanta was not a sleepy southern community. it had more in common with the Wild West. Life in this railroad town often ended in violence or tragedy. Diseases spread rapidly thanks to Atlanta’s humid climate and swampy land. While advances in medicine were made, like the discovery of germ theory and anesthesia, doctors also used quack cures. All this led to illness, injury, death, and a rise in the number of Oakland residents.
