Join us at 3pm on Sunday, March 15th, 2015, to hear Steven A. Brown and Mary Linneman of the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library at UGA use historic maps of the Classic City to explore its expansion over generations.

In a presentation titled, "Athens by Leaps and Bounds, " they will show the development of Athens - its lands, streets, boundaries & wards - through a series of rare and historic maps held by Hargrett and dating from 1805 to 1946.  

Following their illustrated talk, the original maps themselves will be shown in the Montgomery Reading Room of the Richard B. Russell Special Collections Building.  

This program is free and open to the public, with parking available at the S. Hull Street garage..

We hope to see you there!
