ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the neoclassic architecture Millennium Gate created by Rodney Mims Cook Jr. in Georgia. Cook originally intended his arch for Washington, D.C., but the plan got held up by city government. Upon entering its interior, one finds rooms dedicated to Georgia history from Indian times to the Spanish period and the British colonial era. Offices and dwellings of Georgia business magnates, philanthropists and doers of civic good have been re-created.
