The Real Story of how Wieuca Road got its Name, Ken Thomas

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


Wieuca Road – It’s not named for an Indian Princess, or three daughters of anyone. The story of how the road got its name in the early 1900s has long intrigued Atlantans. All previous stories are but myth.

Kenneth H. Thomas, Jr., genealogy columnist for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, has unraveled the truth. It involves a love story, a future governor, and shows how the truth can be buried so deep it was almost lost forever. Come hear the amazing unraveling of how this name came to be on the Atlanta map.

Those who support Buckhead history and preservation become a part of their community’s living heritage.



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.
