“The historic City Hall in Griffin—a 2014 Georgia Trust Place in Peril site— was recognized for the town’s determination to rehabilitate the historic building, passing a SPLOST bill to fund the work. This project exemplifies an outstanding rehabilitation project that shows the determination of Griffin’s leadership and citizens who have proven that ‘where there’s a will, there’s a way.’”
The Trust was formed in 1973 to advocate for “the preservation and revitalization of Georgia’s diverse historic resources and advocates their appreciation, protection and use.”
