History on Main Street - Sponsor a Granite Sentinel!


The Society is  working  in partnership with the 175th committee on a Main Street banner program, The Granite Sentinels, that honors individuals and organizations that have helped shape the city’s history and its development.  We welcome nominations that show history both big and small and that reflect the richness of our past.  Each 24" by 36" banner is sponsored and will be displayed on Main Street's lamp posts for a two-month period (see example).  Money garnered from this program will help to fund the relocation of the quarry workers sculpture and will fund Main Street projects.  The first set of 16 is sold out and they will go on exhibit from May through June.  If you are interested in sponsoring a banner or have questions, please contact Kim Cumbie (by phone 678-234-3263 or by email

Founded in 1996, The Stone Mountain Historic Society, Inc. is headquartered at the historic Wells Brown House. The house was a kind donation from the Brown Family which galvanized our group.

Our Mission
is to promote public interest in the preservation of historic buildings and sites, and to
collect, interpret and preserve the unique heritage of the City of Stone Mountain and its environs.

Our Vision is to become the touchstone for Stone Mountain's heritage by actively preserving, collecting, interpreting and educating the public about Stone Mountain's rich past.

We believe that preserving and enhancing the historic character of our city will invigorate and enrich our commercial and community life.

We are a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation, organized and operated exclusively for charitable and educational purposes. All contributions and donations to the society are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.


Wish List

We welcome any interested adult who is concerned with preserving the village’s historic character. 
City residents as well as persons who do not reside in Stone Mountain are welcome.

Please be aware: The Stone Mountain Historic Society, Inc. should not be confused with The Stone Mountain Historic Preservation Commission, which is a city board (comparable to the Planning and Zoning board) and is appointed by the Mayor and City Council to regulate preservation efforts in its’ recently established Local Historic District.
