Taking You Places You Have Never Been Before


CIRCA is an auxiliary educational group of APC that offers monthly behind-the-scenes tours of select historic sites in Atlanta and nearby areas.

Usually scheduled for the second Tuesday evening of the month March through December, CIRCA will take you places you have never been before.  Come explore with us!

Atlanta Preservation Center

327 St. Paul Avenue SE

Atlanta, GA 30312

Description:  This is the first in a series of Cloues lectures on early 20th-century house types.  This presentation explores family homes called "small houses" that were built all across the United States from the 1920s to the 1960s.  American Small Houses provided much new housing in their time, and continue to provide affordable residential space today.  Sometimes called "minimal traditional" houses because of their small size and familiar architectural styling, these residences can be considered the 20th-century's first truly popular "modern" dwellings.

Reservations:   Reservations are not required for this event.

The CIRCA Board of Directors look forward to seeing you there!
