Begun in 2005, the Historic Middle Georgia website continues to evolve as the most inclusive online information source about the projects and events related to Historic Preservation and Heritage Tourism taking place in the Middle Georgia Region.
The creation of this directory was facilitated by the Middle Georgia Regional Commission in collaboration with the Middle Georgia Historic Preservation Advisory Committee (HPAC). Membership in the HPAC is comprised of representatives from the 11 counties and 20 cities of the Middle Georgia Region, and includes architects, landscape architects, convention and visitor bureau directors, Main Street and Better Hometown managers, historical society presidents and other community leaders, all of whom are dedicated to preserving the rich history and heritage of the Middle Georgia Region.
Here you will be able to find:
- Education and Resource data about Historic Preservation. As well as frequently asked questions and answers, this sections provides contact information and links to many valuable organizations and sources which deal with preservation and related issues
