Underground was originally opened in 1968 and closed in 1980 due to rapid transit, MARTA, build out. It was reopened in 1989.
Underground is also the site of the 800-pound "Big Peach" that ceremoniously drops every New Years Eve to ring in the new year for thousands of Atlantans and visitors.
Unrelated, on this day in 1853, Harriet Tubman started the Underground Railroad, which would aid the escape of some Georgia slaves, especially those in the northern part of the state.
