Easements Atlanta, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was created in 1984 as a result of a successful alliance between the city of Atlanta, Atlanta History Center, and the Atlanta Preservation Center. They recognized the strong potential for historic preservation easements to help achieve the city’s preservation goals and to help offset the significant costs related to maintaining significant historic properties for public benefit. Therefore, Easements Atlanta’s mission is to accept qualified historic preservation easement donations of certified historic and cultural properties within metropolitan Atlanta, and in turn offer perpetual stewardship and potential tax incentives for property owners.

Board of Directors

The all-volunteer Board of Directors bring ethical professionalism, practical preservation experience, and complimentary skill sets to the review of easement donation applications, the perpetual stewardship of its easements and the operation of the organization. Board members include the directors of three local history organizations – the Atlanta Preservation Center, the Atlanta History Center, and the Atlanta Urban Design Commission. In addition, the Board elects other professionals including real estate developers, tax attorneys, preservation architects, and preservation planners.
