Vinings Historic Preservation Society

The Vinings Historic Preservation Society was established by the Ruth Carter Vanneman Foundation, Inc., a nonprofit, charitable 501 (c)(3) corporation, for the purpose of preserving historic Vinings. Its primary mission is to preserve the historic spirit and structures of Vinings – the Pace House, Old Pavilion and Vinings Center which serve as a focal point for Vinings’ colorful history, telling vibrant stories of the city’s founder Hardy Pace.

VHPS seeks to educate the public about the long-lasting relationships with local residents and stakeholders towards its endeavors. The Society also collect and displays in these facilities Pace family and Vinings artifacts and other memorabilia for the interest and education of the public and the Vinings community.

Vinings is truly a unique Atlanta treasure – a look back to a simpler time before Atlanta’s explosive growth and urban sprawl. Protecting, preserving and maintaining the jewel that is Vinings does take some work – that’s why we are always looking for support from individual and corporate patrons alike, both in the form of paid memberships and preservation donations. All donations are tax deductible, and a variety of membership and donation levels are available.
