Abandoned Atlanta: Echoes of a Storied Past

Author(s): Jeff Hagerman
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.


Jeff Hagerman has spent the last six years searching for and exploring abandoned locations all over the United States. What started as a self-taught hobby became an obsession, and produced a large collection of photos of ever-changing and disappearing places. As a long-time resident of Atlanta, Georgia, much of the collection contains his home city. Buildings most people would stay away from are the buildings most attractive to him. Jeff’s photos have been published by Yahoo News, The Weather Channel, WSB-TV, Creative Loafing, Daily Mail, Mirror, The Sun, and more. His work has been displayed at Notch 8, City of Ink, Radial Café, and by Atlanta Contact Point. Follow his work on Instagram @sloppystick and on his website www.jhagphoto.com.
