The Atlanta Preservation Center (APC) is the City’s private non-profit preservation organization. It was founded in 1979 and throughout its 37 years of operation has worked to make a richer environment in the city by advocating for Atlanta’s historic resources. We seek to bring an awareness of the existence and value of a diverse range of treasures. 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. the 1856 lemuel Pratt Grant mansion in the Grant Park Historic District was described by city historian Franklin Garrett as the city’s most historic building but nearly lost the battle for survival until the APc restored it to purposeful use as our headquarters. visit our website to learn about APc’s current advocacy projects. the APc also seeks to create a climate for preservation through education. our 11 guided walking tours raise consciousness and present the history of Atlanta to residents and visitors alike. our Heritage education program introduces concepts of history, preservation, architecture, and civics to students in grades K-12. the APc’s website, social media outreach and newsletters provide information and insight throughout the year. You can be a part of saving, shaping and enjoying Atlanta’s heritage. Join APc today!

William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum Historic Jewish Atlanta: Grant Park Tour Atlanta Preservation Center 327 St. Paul Avenue SE, Atlanta, GA 30312 www.thebreman.org Wednesday, March 16, 2016, 10:30am

Experience history at its source! Join us at our latest Jewish Atlanta Tour destination of Grant Park and take a walk through its living history! Grant Park was given to the city in 1882 by entrepreneur Lemuel P. Grant. With a beautiful lake, numerous springs, and even an amusement area, the park quickly became a favorite spot among Atlantans. This City landmark was surrounded by a thriving Jewish community in the early 20th century and among its residents were Leo and Lucille Frank. Leo Frank, a Jewish factory superintendent, was convicted of the murder of his 13 year old employee, Mary Phagan in 1913. This conviction would ultimately lead to his lynching in 1915 by a group of influential men from Marietta, the Phagan family’s hometown. See Grant Park through Leo and Lucille’s eyes with a guided tour. Street parking is located around the LP Grant Mansion. The William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum celebrates and commemorates the Jewish experience and universal themes of diversity and human dignity with an emphasis on Jewish culture, arts, and history.
