Atlanta has a rich and complex history worth remembering, but its desire to become the next booming sensation puts it at risk of becoming a tear-down city. Before our eyes, historic buildings are being knocked down for apartments, parking decks and office spaces, while markers known across the world are turning into rubble. Whether still abandoned, destroyed, or renovated, local photographer Jeff Hagerman has been able to access and document some of the most storied locations before it's too late.

From the places where Atlantans paid their power bills to the high school that Martin Luther King Jr. attended, Hagerman has captured some of the city's rich history that has been neglected for decades. Follow him as he explores and uncovers the unique history of these locations that are part of the fabric of the city of Atlanta.
