The Buckhead Heritage Society sponsored a history-themed scavenger hunt throughout Buckhead to raise money in support of the nonprofit’s mission to identify, preserve and promote the area’s history and historic resources. Ninety-two participants competed in 12 teams, solving clues, seeking out historic locations and taking photos related to the community’s past. Each uncovered clue was worth points. The first clue led participants to a private residence on Northside Drive that once was a private badminton supper club during the 1960s—a place that brought together Atlanta’s leading bankers and attorneys. Other stops included were Sardis Methodist Church cemetery, Harmony Grove cemetery, Five Paces Inn, Charlie Loudermilk Park and more. At the end of the hunt, guests returned to the starting point on Northside Drive for festivities, including wine, mint juleps and hors d’oeuvres, as well as a rousing closing ceremony that celebrated the winning teams. The event raised $19,000 for the Society. – Jessica Wise
