Buckhead Heritage Receives Dedicated Support

from Ashley Shares, Director of Preservation

at Oakland Cemetery

Buckhead Heritage is pleased to announce that Ashley Shares, Director of Preservation at Oakland Cemetery, has been actively contributing to the preservation efforts at New Hope AME Church on Arden Road. 
Operating on a contract basis, Shares has made significant strides in the ongoing gravestone restoration project at New Hope Cemetery. Currently, Shares has successfully completed over half of the gravestone restoration work, showcasing her expertise and commitment to preserving the historical significance of New Hope Cemetery. Shares is dedicated to completing the project within the next month. Her exemplary work can be observed through the restoration of various markers, a testament to her skill and passion for heritage preservation. Examples of her work are thoughtfully provided below for public appreciation. 
In the course of her work at New Hope AME Church, Shares has identified additional broken grave markers that require attention. In light of this, Buckhead Heritage is extending an invitation to the community to participate in this meaningful cause by making donations. These contributions will directly support the continuation of Shares’ work beyond the originally defined scope, allowing for the restoration of more grave markers in need. 
Donations can be made online through our official website, please click here,  or by contacting our office directly at (404) 467-9447 or rwaterhouse@buckheadheritage.com. If you prefer, you can send a check to the organization. Please see address below. Every contribution, big or small, will make a significant impact on preserving our community’s rich history. 
Buckhead Heritage expresses gratitude for the ongoing support from Ashley Shares and looks forward to the collective effort in safeguarding the historical legacy of New Hope Cemetery.

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.
