This sister stood proudly on the grounds of the state capital since her dedication. Recent economic events have allowed the Georgia legislature to fund the creation of a new plaza located adjacent to the capital. This new plaza is named Liberty Plaza and is to be the new home of our Sister and act as host for up to 3000 people to gather within its space. She is to share the space with a replica of the Liberty Bell and other notable landmarks. Using Google Earth I have located the Liberty Bell replica in their August 24, 2015 image. I do not seem able to locate the Liberty replica in that image however. Hopefully she will have been installed into her new home by the next flyover. If you have any information on where she has ended up or images of her in her new location please submit your story via our online form.

Atlanta History Center chronicles the city’s past, and the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site is dedicated to the African-American leader’s life and times. Downtown, 21-acre Centennial Olympic Park, built for the 1996 Olympics, encompasses the massive Georgia Aquarium.
