Monument Avenue has been the location of a lot of controversy lately. It’s the location of many powerful statues which commemorate Civil War (Southern) heroes. As the population is becoming more attuned to issues of race, people are starting to question whether statues honoring slave holding leaders of the Confederacy are appropriate to adorn our fine city. Marches take place there with enthusiastic participants on both sides of the issue.
At other times, this beautiful street is ablaze with fall color and is one of the most beautiful streets I’ve ever seen. And at Easter, the annual Easter Parade is held to which most attendees wear their fanciest Easter bonnets, dogs included!
