This Peace Pole had a long history beginning in 1994 when it was planted at the intersection of Briarcliff Rd. & LaVista Rd. by the Druid-Lavista Business Assoc. on Earth Day with a garden to commemorate the beginning of the construction of area sidewalks. When Don’s Auto Repair business was torn down to make room for a Starbucks, the Peace Pole was temporarily moved to the Friendship Garden in Decatur. With assistance from Dr. Bob Lupton, Andrea was able to buy her first house, creating a community Peace Center. Through FCS Urban Ministries bus loads of youth from around the U.S. came to renovate the damaged house. When that was complete Andrea and Partnerships In Peace found a new home for the Peace Pole at GlenCastle, having a ceremony in 2000.
