Home - Grant Park Conservancy

On June 5, 2021, you’ll have the opportunity to sip a specially curated collection of wines from Sarah Pierre, owner of famed Atlanta wine shop 3 Parks Wine Shop, in a special historic Grant Park location, while raising funds for the non-profit Grant Park Conservancy (GPC). This wine tasting will combine all your favorite things: learning about and drinking wine with friends and neighbors, nibbling on delicious charcuterie, (socially-distanced) mingling at a historic Grant Park home, and supporting a good cause!

There will be two seatings of no more than 50 people, held from 4:00-6:00pm and 7:00-9:00pm in a beautiful back yard setting. Each seating will feature 4-5 wine tastings, light appetizers and an informed discussion about each wine tasted. Located at 622 Grant Street, the historic Burns mansion is one of the most iconic homes in Grant Park.

The Burns Mansion, an 1868 Queen Anne-Victorian, is the sixth oldest remaining original home in Atlanta, and possibly the only home with a 40-foot-deep well right in the middle of the kitchen. The elegant and comfortable family-friendly home is owned by members of the GPC, Erin and Matt Miller and their family. Their focus over the last two years has been establishing permanent forested gardens in the half-acre yard. The Millers are the most recent in a line of owners, since 1976, that have taken the time and effort to lovingly help restore the Burns Mansion to its former grandeur. The GPC is very thankful to the Millers for opening their distinctive home to help raise much-needed funds.

Voted Atlanta Magazine’s 2020 “Best Wine Shop- Readers Choice” and Wine Enthusiasts 2020 “50 America’s Best Wine Retail/Best Wine Clubs in America,” 3 Parks Wine Shop is the place to go if you’re looking for something that makes a lasting impression. Owner Sarah Pierre opened the shop after a career in restaurants. She focuses on small, organic, and biodynamic producers. 3 Parks Wine Shop offers weekly wine tastings, a large selection of wine offerings, wine growlers on tap, and the best wine club in Georgia. Centrally located between Grant, Glenwood and Ormewood Parks (hence the name 3 Parks) is a hip, fun wine shop dedicated to finding your perfect wine. The GPC is so pleased to have Sarah host this wine tasting! She’s incredibly knowledgeable, with her finger on the pulse of what the locals are loving, and what’s hot on the current wine scene. Plus, she makes an impressive addition to the Grant Park Conservancy board, on which she serves in 2021.

It’s sure to be a night to remember! Tickets are $125 per person, and can be purchased on the Grant Park Conservancy’s website (https://gpconservancy.org). Contact Nikki Zimmerman at [email protected] for more information about the event or purchasing tickets.

We are working to create a world-class park, by restoring and preserving its historic importance and features while providing venues for active and passive recreation for all the people who use the park. We are an oasis of greenspace in the heart of America’s greatest city. In working to preserve ...

OUR PHOENIX FLIES CELEBRATION LAUNCHES THIS WEEKEND!
Yes, this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Phoenix Flies looks a little different than previous years. The program features a little over half of our routine partners participating, with a mix of virtual and in-person events. In-person events do require masks to be worn and maximum guest numbers have been reduced in order to meet required social distancing protocols.

All events are free to the public, but reservations or registration are required for some events.

For more information or details about reservations, please visit www.atlantapreservationcenter.com/phoenix_flies, call 404-688-3353, or email [email protected].

The Atlanta Preservation Center will present its 18th annual award-winning Phoenix Flies: A Celebration of Atlanta’s Historic Sites from March 6 through March 28.

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, however, Phoenix Flies 2021 will be smaller and look a little different from previous celebrations. Events this year are a mix of in-person tours, following CDC social distancing protocols, and virtual tours and presentations, both pre-recorded and live. Some partners will offer both an in-person and a virtual option. A majority of the in-person events will take place outdoors. Regularly participating partners who have opted out of the celebration this year due to COVID concerns remain in the program and are featured as “Partner Spotlights.”

The three-week event celebrating Atlanta’s cultural and historic resources will showcase over 50 participating Preservation Partners offering close to 100 separate events, including guided walking tours of historic neighborhoods and districts, cemeteries, parks, gardens, and battlefields; lectures on history, historic preservation, and rehabilitation, and photography; and open houses and tours at house museums, churches, history centers/libraries, and community landmarks, all available to the public free of charge. As a tribute to the beneficial respite and solace that nature and outdoor spaces can offer us during this time of COVID-19, the program features a photospread section on the City of Atlanta’s public parks and spaces.

Featured in-person events this year include the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art’s new tour of the Goodrum House garden led by landscape architect Spencer Tunnell. Two events that debuted with the 2020 Phoenix Flies, but were canceled due to COVID-19 concerns, return and include the Atlanta History Center’s exhibit on women’s suffrage, and the Salvation Army’s Southern Historical Center at Evangeline Booth College. Pre-recorded virtual tour options include the Atlanta Daily World building on Auburn Avenue, the downtown Peachtree Center Historic District, St. Paul’s United Methodist Church in Grant Park, the Summerhill, Blandtown, and Candler Park neighborhoods, the Art Deco Plaza Theatre, the 1918 DeKalb County Courthouse, and several rehabilitation/adaptive use projects.

Virtual lectures and presentations, a mix of live and pre-recorded events, include UGA’s Hargrett Library exhibit on convict labor in Georgia, the Rialto Center’s 100-year retrospective film, a history of Oglethorpe University, South Downtown’s history and current redevelopment, a forum on current preservation projects in the Atlanta metro region, old house maintenance tips, an overview of the Atlanta Studies Network, and historical overviews on U.S. currency and Civil War photography.

All events are free to the public, but reservations or registration are required for some events.

The Porch Press, a Community Service

By Henry Bryant

When The Porch Press began 33 years ago, there had been community newspapers in the three neighborhoods of Neighborhood Planning Unit-W (NPU-W) for a while. The Park Bench had served Grant Park, The Sand Paper had served the SAND neighborhoods, and The Fishwrapper had served East Atlanta as the area started to be seen as ripe for redevelopment in the late ‘70s. There had even been newspapers before that going back to the 1950s. The Porch Press, as it was devised by volunteers from the East Atlanta Community Association (EACA), the Grant Park Neighborhood Association (GPNA), and South Atlantans for Neighborhood Development (SAND), thought that by combining efforts they could create a monthly publication that would serve all of NPU-W and help improve the quality of life in these neighborhoods.

The new neighborhood newspaper, supported by neighborhood businesses and the neighborhood organizations, met with immediate success. That success has always depended on that support and the efforts of an all-volunteer staff. Without the money from advertising, the paper could not be printed or mailed. Without the volunteers, there would be no articles and the paper would not get assembled.

As the neighborhood real estate market began to boom and more new businesses moved to the area, Porch Press advertising also boomed. Early on, the paper established a policy of setting aside money so that the paper could withstand a drought of advertising funding. Along the way, the paper became a 501(c)(4) nonprofit corporation. The Porch Press Board decided that after printing, mailing, and other expenses were met, we needed to not only be nicer to our volunteers, but that we needed to give back to our neighborhood. For years, the newspaper became philanthropic, supporting various tours, races, festivals, and other events with money. At the same time, we gifted the tickets to our volunteers to thank them for their support. Even as our finances have shrunk, The Porch Press has still been able to support the Neighborhood associations with some pro bono advertising, and the newspaper has never charged for printing press releases about the neighborhood activities.
