Edith Kelman, founder of Candler Park’s BiRacial History Project, worked with a small crew of volunteers to install a new historical marker at 420 Oakdale Road on Saturday Nov. 9. The site was where the Antioch East Baptist Church was first located, from 1877-1916. Planning for the marker began three years ago and it is the fourth historical marker placed in the neighborhood stemming from Kelman’s research into the neighborhood’s rich history.
