In 1901, Atlanta's underground streets (now Underground Atlanta) made it necessary to erect viaducts. That meant that certain buildings would come down. One of them was the centennial block of the southwest corner of Whitehall Street looking towards Alabama Street. An old Stump of a cherry tree on Whitehall Street was pointed out as the place where a Continental Soldier picked a cherry. Source: Atlanta, Georgia, May 17, 1901.
