About Phoenix FliesAtlanta™s historic built environment of buildings, landscapes and neighborhoods is an integral part of the city™s culture and economy. Phoenix Flies: A Celebration of Atlanta™s Historic Sites provides an opportunity to learn about, celebrate and strengthen Atlanta™s historic and cultural assets. ˜e celebration was created in 2003 by the Atlanta Preservation Center as a way to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the dramatic rescue of the Fox ˜eatre, an event that changed Atlanta™s preservation perspective forever. Phoenix Flies 2021 is the 18th year that the APC has brought together organi- zations and individuals from the community to demonstrate the value of Atlanta™s historic built environment. ˜e celebration has grown from 16 preservation partners and 40 events to an average of 100 partners o˚ering over 200 events each year. ˜is year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Phoenix Flies looks a little di˚erent than previous years. ˜e 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 be worn and maximum guest numbers have been reduced in order to meet recommended social distancing protocols.

Welcome to Phoenix Flies 2021The Atlanta Preservation Center is fortunate for our many preservation and community partnerships. ˜e challenges of COVID-19 have forced everyone to re˛ect on what they see as important. ˜rough this, we realize how precious the many connections we have built and sustain are Š now more than ever. ˜is year we will be focusing on the role of our City of Atlanta public parks. ˜rough this di˝cult time, the Parks and Recreation Department of the City of Atlanta has maintained our public parks and provided a place of refuge with the best ways to stay healthy and safe. We hope that everyone enjoys these spaces and learns the stories of this city Š and their neighborhoods Š by walking where those who have come before have walked. ˜ese spaces serve as the gateway to better embracing our roles as stewards of our public parks and of our City. We are also grateful to have partners that have adapted and grown to show how they can still carry out their mission Š while preserving the very basic needs of the space they represent. By using the virtual domain and safe interaction, we have cra˙ed a way to remember the past and look forward to the future Š by having preservation remind us of what we are. ˜e Atlanta Preservation Center cannot exist without the support of its many supporters, partners, and members Š but its existence would not matter if our citizens were not served by our work. We are grateful to have this opportunity to showcase Atlanta and give reason to use preservation as a way to exhibit our purpose. Please enjoy this Phoenix Flies while remembering what has happened and having the courage to see what we will become by reinforcing what we have saved. David Y. Mitchell, Executive Director Atlanta Preservation Center

About AtlantaAtlanta was sited in 1837 to serve as a railroad transportation hub and, therefore, was assured to be a place of growth and expansion. At the end of the Civil War in 1865, over half of the city had been burned and its infrastructure destroyed. Nonetheless, in 1868, it became the Georgia state capital and by the end of Reconstruction in 1877 was physically much larger than its pre-war boundaries. ˜e city now features well over 150 years of buildings, neighborhoods and landscapes which are eligible for the National Register of Historic PlacesŠall worthy of preservation and celebration. Look for the National Register (NR) designation beneath the event listing description. ˜e Phoenix Flies celebration is an annual program of the Atlanta Preservation Center. If you know of a place that should be celebrated, please contact us so that we may consider including it in next year™s program. Program design by Mark Ziemer.
