Areas of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport are located partially in the city limits, and the Georgia International Convention Center is within the city as well. A very historical city, it has over 850 properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of the Interior. While all of the locations are not open to visitors, there is a sign in front of each that will tell you its significance. The city's historical collection consists of homes, monuments, businesses, schools, churches, parks, a cemetery, government building, and railway station.
