Speaker Series:

East Lake: Where Bobby Learned to Play

Linton Hopkins 

Thursday July 11, 2019  –  7 pm St. Philip’s Cathedral, Gould Rm.

Buckhead Heritage members $10, visitors $15

Linton Hopkins, now a retired Physician, began writing down the stories about legends like Bobby Jones  he’d heard at East Lake Club over the past 30 years. Tom Cousins told him “If you write it, I’ll sell It”. That book sold out, and this is the sequel. Rumor has it that Alexa Stirling, U.S. Women’s Amateur golf champion in 1916, ’19 and ’20, might also come to tell her story. Since Alexa was born in the 1890s and would now be over 120 years young, we’re not sure what to expect, but it should be very entertaining.

The Buckhead Heritage Society is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that was founded in 2006 by a group of Buckhead residents who recognized the need for an advocacy organization to protect Buckhead’s significant historic resources.  As Buckhead surges into the 21st century, many of its stories, documents, buildings, cemeteries, and other historic resources are at risk of being lost.

From our Founding Members whose capital contributions have seeded our efforts, to our Board Members who oversee our Mission, to our Executive Director and staff who implement our programs, Buckhead Heritage Society is a group of individuals with a collective passion for Buckhead history and Buckhead preservation.

We recognize the importance of identifying, preserving, restoring, and promoting the community’s historic resources for the benefit of future generations. We hope you will join us on our mission.
