Tag: National Trust for Historic Preservation
Back in 2012, the National Trust for Historic Preservation named Atlanta’s Sweet Auburn district to its list of the country’s “most endangered” historic places. Much bemoaning of Atlanta’s fondness for the wrecking ball followed—just as it had in 1992, the first time that the Trust sounded the alarm on the precarious status of one of the most influential locations in African American history.
Our city is infamous for demolishing its past. Much of that rep is deserved, but the Atlanta Preservation Center’s annual Phoenix Flies showcases the exceptions—saved structures and restored spaces. Over 16 days, participants can choose from 150 tours staged with APC’s 80 partners.
