Point of Interest - Atlanta Preservation Center

The Atlanta Preservation Center is the City’s private non-profit preservation organization. It was founded in 1979 to promote the preservation of Atlanta's architecturally, historically and culturally significant buildings, neighborhoods and landscapes through education and advocacy.
Throughout its operation the Atlanta Preservation Center (APC) has worked to make a richer environment in the City by advocating for Atlanta’s historic resources. They have sought to bring an awareness of the existence and value of a diverse range of treasures and to propose ways in which they can be made viable assets for use and purpose in the life of the City.
In cooperation with the Atlanta Urban Design Commission; the Historic Preservation Division, Georgia Department of Natural Resources; Easements Atlanta; the Atlanta Regional Commission and many other organizations and individuals, the APC has helped to preserve and revitalize countless resources throughout Atlanta. Our interests have involved us in the local and national designation of Historic Districts such as Fairlie-Poplar, Auburn Avenue and Grant Park and in the protection and redevelopment of individual buildings including Ivy Hall, the Castle, the Georgian Terrace, the Biltmore and the Glenn Hotel.  We have put our efforts into concepts as comprehensive as the BeltLine and as specific as the restoration of the Sidney Lanier Monument in Piedmont Park.
