2013 PRESERVATION AWARDS: STEWARDSHIP

Vinings Historic Preservation Society
Smyrna, Cobb County

Established in 1993, the Vinings Historic Preservation Society uses three historic properties, the Pace House, the Old Pavilion and the Yarbrough House, to help educate the public about historic architecture and the history of Vinings. When the preservation society identified elements of the Pace House in need of structural repairs, it recognized an opportunity to conduct pre-rehabilitation archaeological investigations in an attempted to gather new information to support or debunk local lore regarding the property's association with the Civil War. The investigation revealed new knowledge of the Pace House's history and new insights into the property's prehistoric occupation. The information gathered through this project will support the Vinings Historic Preservation Society's continued use and interpretation of the property and provide additional educational resources for the public.
