The site of Leo and Lucille Frank residence (former)
68 East Georgia Avenue
2010 – Present
On the 26th of April, 1913 Leo M. Frank was arrested for the murder of Mary Phagan. The trial, July 28-August 26, 1913, and lynching, August 16/17, 1915, would represent the only known lynching of a Jew in United States history.
On March 11, 1986, the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles issued a posthumous pardon to Leo M. Frank, based on the state’s failure to protect him while in custody; it did not absolve him of the crime of murder.
This plaque is here to remind the future of the past, to ensure that truth is history's benchmark, and to the memory of all that perished from this event.
