Paces Ferry UMC Saved

Neighbors living around Paces Ferry United Methodist Church, led by Ham Powell, have acquired the historic 1877 church. They envision it as a place for Bible study and learning.
As you may recall, the Methodist Church listed the property for sale, but potential uses were fortunately limited due to the lot size and zoning restrictions.

This is a significant preservation victory, and Buckhead Heritage wants to extend all our heartfelt thanks to all of you for your ongoing efforts. Our advocacy and involvement in raising awareness about the fate of this historic site undoubtedly played a role in its preservation.

Second Annual Summer FUN-raiser

Sunday, August 18, 2024

Atlanta International School Auditorium

Come join your fellow members and guests for another rousing trivia game which will challenge your knowledge of Buckhead’s significant heritage. Our Game Show Host will be outstanding Board Member, James Ottley.

Guests are encouraged once again to bring a favorite small item of Buckhead memorabilia to display on the “Memory Lane Table” (maybe an ashtray from a former restaurant, a postcard, or a program from an event). There will be wine, beer, and other refreshments all afternoon along with a sit-down, “Summer Supper”, consisting of fried chicken and all the trimmings, topped off with a seasonal dessert.

Those who support Buckhead history and preservation become a part of their community’s living heritage.



The Buckhead Heritage Society is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that was founded in 2006 by a group of Buckhead residents who recognized the need for an advocacy organization to protect Buckhead’s significant historic resources.  As Buckhead surges into the 21st century, many of its stories, documents, buildings, cemeteries, and other historic resources are at risk of being lost.

From our Founding Members whose capital contributions have seeded our efforts, to our Board Members who oversee our Mission, to our Executive Director and staff who implement our programs, Buckhead Heritage Society is a group of individuals with a collective passion for Buckhead history and Buckhead preservation.

We recognize the importance of identifying, preserving, restoring, and promoting the community’s historic resources for the benefit of future generations. We hope you will join us on our mission.
