A lecture and tour highlighting “Modern Buckhead”–the buildings that rose along Peachtree Street in the 1940s to 1990s–is scheduled for Fri., Feb. 26 at the Atlanta Masonic Center.

Co-sponsored by the Buckhead Heritage Society and the Atlanta Regional Commission, the event focuses on more than 25 notable buildings between Brookwood and Lenox Square. The mid-20th century period is also when Buckhead became part of the city of Atlanta in a 1952 annexation.

The lecture begins at 10:30 a.m. at the Masonic Center auditorium, 1690 Peachtree Road. It’s free, but RSVPs are requested here. The bus tour of the area starts at 11:30 a.m., costs $15 and is limited to 30 participants, who can register here.
