A Voice for the City, Shedding Light on Treasures, Preservation is Important

Advocacy & Education

Since its inception in 1979, the Atlanta Preservation Center has worked tirelessly to preserve hundreds of historic residential and commercial structures and sites through Advocacy and Education. This work takes many forms; historical research, walking tours, coordinating possible partners, community education programs, meeting with potential buyers, K-12 school outreach programs, attending public hearings and informing the public.

Over the years, the APC has assisted in saving such historic buildings as:

  • 1901 Bank of America Building
  • 1924 Rich’s Building
  • Carriage Works
  • Fulton Bag and Cotton Mill
  • The Georgian Terrace
  • LP Grant Mansion
  • King Plow Arts Center
  • Margaret Mitchell House
  • The Peters House/Ivy Hall

And neighborhoods and districts have been protected with APC’s support:

  • Adair Park
  • Brookwood Hills
  • Cabbagetown
  • Druid Hills
  • Fairlie-Poplar
  • Grant Park
  • Midtown
  • Mozley Park
