Homes of Famous Atlanta Whales, In Map Form

View as Map

We've randomly selected eight of Atlanta's most intriguing and famous whales in a effort to chart their migratory patterns over the last decade or so.
These mansion dwellers run the gamut from highfalutin British royalty, to legendary pitchers to convicted felons. They frolic from Johns Creek to Jonesboro. Please note that not all addresses were available, and thus some pinpoints are an approximation of whale habitation.
