Exceptional Holiday Decor inside and out by artist owner.
Last call – a very limited number of tickets are available.
Buckhead Heritage will celebrate the Holidays this year at one of the earlier homes built on Peachtree Battle Avenue. In the late 1920’s and 30’s this homes owners property included all but a few lots from Peachtree Battle to West Wesley, and from Northside Dr to Habersham Rd. They sold lots in Haynes Manor and Westover, and traded this house for the Buckhead Theater in 1937. This magnificent art-filled home has retained many historic architectural details throughout extensive renovations and additions over the years.
Enjoy this fun cocktail buffet with friends, music and valet parking while helping support Buckhead Heritage.
Host Committee and Patrons lists are online and will go to printers on Monday November 4. Register online or call Richard at the office, 404-467-9447 for more information.

Speaker Series: Buckhead Living Sentinels Tree Hunt and Historic Resources Survey, by John Beach
Jan 8 – 7 pm – St Philip Cathedral, Gould Rm
Buckhead Heritage is launching a one year project to find Living Sentinel Trees still in our neighborhoods from the Creek Indian Nation. When the Treaty of Indian Springs was signed on Jan 8, 1821, surveyors laid out land lots for a settlers lottery. In the process they marked about 1000 Buckhead trees by species on their first map. Using mapping technology, we believe we’ve located one of these still growing trees, and want your help locating more. John will also talk about the Historic Resources Register, and planned additions, where we’ll add Living Sentinels we locate.
February Book Club
On February 13 Atlanta author Janine Crist will discuss her historical fiction novel Mary Amazon.
It is the story of Atlanta families from before, during and after the Civil War, including the Siege of Atlanta.
