Project Type:
Industrial & Other Projects

The Centennial Olympic Park Early Believers Project was constructed as a tribute to Billy Payne and those responsible for bringing the 1996 Olympic games to Atlanta.  The project consisted of custom curved granite benches honoring key Atlanta business leaders (Jim Kennedy, Bill Dahlberg, Bob Holder, Bennett Brown, Herman Russell and Ivan Allen III) first to embrace the Olympic bid. New landscaping  and stone column featuring the names of the "Atlanta Nine" volunteers who led the bid committee also join the statue of Payne installed in 1997.
