History & Highlights Hike in Atlanta's Piedmont Heights

RESCHEDULED because of rain from Saturday, June 8 to Saturday, June 22 from 10:00 a.m.–noon


Did you know one of Atlanta's oldest neighborhoods is tucked away in the heart of the city between Ansley Park, Morningside, and Midtown? Piedmont Heights is a "Small Town in a Big City" with lots of history as well as a vibrant business community!

Bring the family or a friend and enjoy a two-hour guided walking tour through Piedmont Heights! Get your steps in while walking around this tree-filled neighborhood with Steve Saenz of ExploreATL Tours.

Explore ATL Tours

History buffs along with neighborhood residents will love learning about this Piedmont Heights' unique landmarks in Atlanta’s history as well as its recent street art installations. Who is Monroe Drive named after? Have you ever seen the second-oldest home in Atlanta? You'll learn about these historic gems and much more! Also, in October 2018, two traffic boxes received a creative facelift with custom artwork created by local artist Lauren Pallotta Stumberg (ThinkGreatly), made possible by a Neighborhood Arts Grant from the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs.

With your History & Highlights Hike tour ticket, you also receive one raffle ticket! Additional tickets may be purchased in advance or the day of the tour.

Tour Starting Point

The History & Highlights of Piedmont Heights Walking Tour will start at Morningside Baptist Church in Piedmont Heights. Please arrive at 9:45 a.m. so that we may begin promptly at 10:00 a.m.—there's lots to see! Thank you to our Parking Sponsor, Morningside Baptist Church! The parking lot is located on Montgomery Ferry Road, right off Piedmont Road, across from Fat Matt's Rib Shack and Rock Springs Presbyterian Church.

We'll be walking around the neighborhood mostly on sidewalks. We encourage you to wear comfy walking shoes and protect your skin from UV rays and bugs with sunscreen, bug spray, lightweight long sleeves, and a hat.

This special event is brought to you by the Piedmont Heights Civic Association (PHCA) and the Piedmont Heights Community Improvement Foundation (PHCIF) in collaboration with our community partners:
