Suggested sites include former and active historic hospitals, fire and police stations, churches, Civil Rights sites, LGBT sites, schools, grocery stores, places of protest, and government buildings such as post offices, courthouses and city halls. Sites can be big or small, historically significant or personally meaningful, and restored or not. All we ask is that they be 50 years or older.
“The buildings that house relief efforts bear witness to the courage and endurance of current and previous generations,” said Mark C. McDonald, Georgia Trust president and CEO. “These buildings also remind us of the importance of continuity in our nation’s history and of our ability to heal. These places have indeed been on the front lines of history, and we will tell their stories,” he added.
