N. Fulton city gets $17K federal grant for historic preservation

Seven cities in Georgia will receive federal grants this year to support historic preservation projects. 

And Roswell is one of them. 

The city in north Fulton County has been awarded $17,050, and will use the funds to conduct a survey looking at the city’s historic resources. Roswell hasn’t done a historic resources survey since 2001, so this will provide a useful inventory accounting for changes in the environment, city boundaries, and advances in technology, city officials say.

“This survey is important for many reasons, not the least of which is the fact that all preservation activities begin with knowing what historic resources exist in our municipality,” said Julie Martin, Roswell city planner and historic preservation specialist. “And since so many years have passed since the city’s last survey, more of the city’s buildings have aged and could possibly be identified as ‘historic’.” 

In addition to Roswell, cities that also received grants included Atlanta, Hampton, Toccoa, Avondale Estates, Dublin and Rome.

The Historic Preservation Fund grants facilitate historic preservation planning initiatives and projects throughout the state. The grants are provided annually through the Historic Preservation Fund of the U.S. Department of the Interior’s National Park Service and are administered by the Historic Preservation Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.
