restoration progress and enhancements to the house include front and rear exterior handrails; a chair lift and a completely ADA accessible restroom; reclaimed heart pine floor in the Drawing Room; carpeting in the Library and Bobby Jones Conference Room; and, for the business aspects of APC’s work, counter-height file cabinets and a new telephone system.  We are grateful for the donations which made these changes possible.

Funds are still needed to replace the rear retaining wall on Orleans Street so that APC’s street appearance is safe for and attractive to our Grant Park neighbors and is compatible with the neighborhood’s regulations.  APC has on hand $16,200 towards the $41,000 needed complete the project. Gifts of any amount are welcome for this effort. For more information about this significant project, please contact us at info@PreserveAtlanta.com.
