Georgia officials are considering the idea of a adding a new tourist attraction to downtown Atlanta in the form of a state history museum. Gov. Nathan Deal recently toured the old World of Coca-Cola building at the edge of Underground Atlanta.
State officials have let a former Coca-Cola building in downtown Atlanta sit empty after buying it for $1.1 million instead of following through on plans to turn it into a state history museum. The General Assembly has killed funding to start work on building the museum twice since the state bought the property six years ago.
