E8 | Atlanta Postmaster's House | Families Meet

Season 44 Episode 8 | 23m 42s

Eight months ago, the 1890s Victorian project house in Atlanta, GA once owned by Luther Judson Price–South Atlanta’s first black postmaster and civil rights advocate–was a dilapidated, and abandoned structure. Now, it has been restored with deliberate effort to not fix everything. The crew is back for a tour of the new spaces, including the parlor dedicated to the memory of the Prices.
