January 12, 2017

 

On January 26, as a preview to the spring trip April 27-30 to Beersheba Springs, Monteagle and Sewanee, the Atlanta Preservation Center is pleased to offer a presentation by Richard Chenoweth, AIA.

Mr. Chenoweth is a nationally recognized architect and artist who has created an architectural documentation of the extraordinary 1855-1860 resort at Beersheba Springs, Tennessee. The complex at Beersheba Springs is based on the classic Virginia Springs of the early 19th century.  This remarkable project is an excellent example of research and documentation of historic resources using hand and digital techniques, of a very special place in Tennessee history. 

Join us at the Grant Mansion on Thursday, January 26 from  6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. to learn more about this unique excursion.  Refreshments will be served.
