University School copy (1)The Stone Mountain Historical Society was organized in 1966 to promote public interest in the preservation of the City’s history, its 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.

The Society, which is a non-profit 501(c) 3 corporation, is headquartered at the historic Wells Brown House on Ridge Avenue. The graceful 1870s home was graciously donated to the Society in 2005 by the Brown Family and it now houses our growing artifact collection and research library and functions as our meeting space. Our membership is small but growing and though diverse in age and occupations we have one common thread – our commitment to preserving Stone Mountain’s history.
