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 firstname.lastname@example.org).

Wells-Brown House: 7 pm (free to attend). If you are not a member, consider
joining our membership now.)
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.
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.
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.
