Atlanta's Stewart-Lakewood Center


A rendering of the open-air concourse at Atlanta -and Georgia's- first shopping mall. STEWART-LAKEWOOD CENTER opened for business in February 1959 (the first stores at LENOX SQUARE didn't open until the following August). In its heyday, STEWART-LAKEWOOD CENTER was tenanted by nationally-known chains, such as J.C. Penney, Lerner Shops, National Shirt Shops and Woolco.
