Current Exhibit, The Doctor Is In, WELLS BROWN HOUSE

When we pulled together the information on Stone Mountain’s doctors for the original exhibit, we missed one – Dr. James McCurdy.  Son of Dr. Bill McCurdy and brother to Dr. Willis McCurdy, Dr. James Mc Curdy served our country  during World War II in the Pacific Theater.  He would die in a car accident a few short years after his return home.  Through the thoughtfulness of board member Jim McCurdy, we are fortunate to have had access to his letters written home mostly to his father during the war.  His career and accomplishments are the focus of new interpretive panels that chart his experience as he grew from small town doctor to a military doctor and surgeon and to some degree an ambassador for our country.

PRESENTATION:  The Walkup Trail – Stone Mountain’s Petroglyph Trail

July 31st, 6:30 pm, SUE KELLOGG LIBRARY

Pam Enlow Devore, a Georgia State University graduate student, has created an interactive website and mobile app that allows us to explore the numerous petroglyphs carved into or along the Walkup Trail.  People and organizations have made their mark along this historic trail for over a century and her efforts allow us to better understand the stories and artistry that each represents. Who are the Woodsmen of the World or George Veal? Please join us for her presentation on her work which is truly a contribution to our local history.

Refreshments served.
