Georgia celebrating National Preservation Month during May

The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation plans walking tours of some of Macon's prized historic homes and gardens this weekend.

On May 18, the group will gather volunteers in Talbotton to clean up inside Zion Church. The church was built in 1848 and several years ago was placed on the Georgia Trust's annual list of "places in peril."

An open house is planned May 30 in Atlanta at the Randolph-Lucas-Jones House, a 1924 home undergoing rehabilitation after the house was moved to save it from demolition.

The Georgia Trust said in a news release that local preservation groups also plan events in dozens of Georgia communities.
