History of Race Relations and Integration at Fulton Bag & Cotton Mills
September 10, 2021 @ 12:00 pm – September 12, 2021 @ 4:00 pm EDT
The Patch Works Art & History Center
The Patch Works Art & History Center is proud to offer guided walking tours of Fulton Bag & Cotton Mills, during the Stacks Squares/Elevate 2021 weekend – September 10th through 12th.
Jacob Elsas, the great-great grandson of the founder of The Mill, will be leading small groups around the compound, discussing post-Civil War Atlanta’s race relations and the persistent (and ultimately successful) attempts to integrate The Mill’s workforce.
Two, one-hour-long tours will be offered each day – from 12:00pm to 1:00pm, and then from 3:00pm to 4:00pm. For this Elevate 2021 event, all tickets are being sold at the discounted price of $8.00 (normally $15.00).
Please note: For the safety of participants, as well as the residents of The Stacks and Fulton Cotton Mill Lofts, we will be limiting groups to a maximum of ten (10) people. The tour will be strictly outdoors and around the historic structures. In addition, due to the intimate nature of a guided walking tour, we will be asking guests to please wear masks. As per the rules set forth by The Stacks Board:
• No ticket holder / visitor parking allowed on the site.
• No rooftop or pool access is allowed during the tour
• Masks are required at all times
• CDC Guidelines for COVID-19 must be followed at all times
Please arrive at least 15 minutes early. We will be meeting at the back gate on Carroll Street. If driving, please contact us ASAP. The Stacks won’t be allowing visitors to park onsite during the weekend’s festivities, so participants will be asked to find parking in the Cabbagetown neighborhood. Neighborhood parking will be very limited, so consider leaving the car at home! WALK – CYCLE – BELTLINE – UBER – MARTA! Use this address for planning your route: 101 Carroll Street SE 30312. Again, please contact us if you need any assistance or clarification.
To ensure a space, we ask guests to please reserve tickets online. Walk-In purchases will only be allowed if capacity hasn’t been reached for that specific time slot. SEE BELOW FOR TICKETS
