Buckhead Heritage is recording the personal stories and memories of Buckhead, as told by those who lived them, before they are lost forever. Oral history provides a genuine and personal perpective of history and adds an emotional element to understanding our past. Although oral history is inherently a mixture of fact and fiction, it can be an effective means of filling in the gaps in the documentation of Buckhead's history. Check out the progress of our program!
Through its Landowner Technical Assistance services, Buckhead Heritage serves as a local resource for landowners pursuing their personal preservation goals including listing their historic properties on the National Register of Historic Places.
