Power of Preservation Luncheon


On Tuesday, May 15, 2018, Knox Heritage held its second annual Power of Preservation Luncheon at The Press Room. Over 150 supporters of local preservation efforts helped us celebrate National Preservation Month by attending this event.

This luncheon was a special occasion for several reasons. Ethiel Garlington, Executive Director of the Historic Macon Foundation (HMF), was the guest speaker. Ethiel shared details about the transformative power of the HMF real estate program and its impact on Macon neighborhoods. The Luncheon also spotlighted Knox Heritage’s vision for growing an equally transformative Vintage Properties Fund using HMF as a model. In addition, Knox Heritage announced publicly for the first time the 2018 Fragile & Fading list, our annual list of historic places in peril formerly known as the Fragile 15.

The Luncheon was an excellent opportunity to network and learn more about the roles each person and organization can play in building a preservation ethic within our communities.

We are very pleased to have HomeTrust Bank as our sponsor this year. Since 1974, Knox Heritage has been on the front lines of preserving our region’s rich past for a vibrant future. A powerful Vintage Properties Fund is the key to continuing this tradition.
