The Atlanta Scottish Association (ASA), founded in 1912, provided those of Scottish descent in Atlanta, Georgia with a social organization. The membership ranged from active dues paying members to inactive, recognized members. Through monthly meetings held at the Burns Cottage in Atlanta, social gatherings and fraternal events were organized, often with the aid of the Ladies Auxiliary of the ASA. The ASA also maintained ties to other Scottish affiliated organizations, such as the Burns Club of Atlanta and the Burns Federation. Additional historical information has not been determined.
