ATLANTApix: Carnegie Education Pavilion

Carnegie Education Pavilion
Carnegie Education Pavilion
The Carnegie Education Pavilion, engraved with the names Dante, Asop, Milton, and Carnegie, is all that's left of the Carnegie Library

The library was demolished in 1977. Today, the 1996-installed Pavilion stands as a monument to higher education in Atlanta.


The thirty-foot tall Carnegie Library Arch, as it's sometimes called, is on Peachtree Street and West Peachtree Street on the north side of the downtown area in Hardy Ivy Park, directly across the street from the Suntrust Building.

The Carnegie Library once stood at Forsyth and Carnegie Way, only a few blocks from where the Pavilion stands today.
