The Zoo Began around 1889. It began as a circus that had come to town and never left. The circus had planed to go to Marietta, Ga. next but had a stall when the owner went bankrupt. Therefore the animals were left to stay for awhile and began to draw crowds. Two weeks later the animals were purchased at a public auction and donated to the city of Atlanta. Background on the ZOO
