"The Atlanta Preservation Center is the agency for coordination, knowledge, research and advocacy for preservation in the city." The center was founded in 1980, and since has worked with the government, business, and community leaders to preserve over 175 residential and commercial buildings, neighborhoods, and park spaces. Currently, the center is focused on preserving the historic structures on the Beltline, a 22-mile loop of public parks, trails, and transportation. In addition, the center offers regularly scheduled walking tours and popular classroom programs on architecture and community planning.

The site offers background information on the center, information regarding the walking tours and educational programs offered by the center, information on current projects, and an events calendar.
