In 2019-2020, the Marietta City Schools system partnered with Kennesaw State University's Department of Museums, Archives, and Rare Books to create exhibits in the system's new central office on Lemon Street and in the former Lemon Street Elementary School. Included in the research and curatorial process is an ongoing oral history project with alumni and former educators from Lemon Street Elementary School and Lemon Street High School. Participants shared oral history interviews and historical photographs and documents.
