It has been an exciting month at the Glenn House. We wrapped up our last Phoenix Flies tour this past Sunday, and we couldn’t be more grateful to all who attended. We had over twenty people at each tour, and met several new friends in the preservation community. I’ve mentioned this before, but the most rewarding part of this project has been sharing it with Atlanta and beyond. It was exciting to share our journey, artifacts found on site, progress photos and talk with tour attendees about history, their own projects and preservation.

With it’s conclusion this weekend, Phoenix Flies will have offered over 200 free historical and cultural tours to the public. It is truly one of Atlanta’s best city-wide events, and we can’t thank the Atlanta Preservation Center enough for including us and making these historic sites accessible to all. Don’t miss out on the last few events taking place this weekend, including a talk about preservation this Sunday at 3:00 PM at the Atlanta Preservation Center. Find the full list of events here.

Phoenix Flies was the perfect launch into Spring. We’re gearing up to rebuild the front porch brick foundation and finalize designs for the railing, arches and scroll pediment. Our series of posts highlighting interior restorations and renovations will continue next week. Check back this weekend for new progress photos, history and more on the website.

Have a happy weekend!
