Campus Heritage Preservation Plan

This historically Black college developed its preservation plan for its historic core, in order to identify an overall preservation strategy and serve as the basis for all future conservation work.
Abstract: Bennett College, a historically Black private women's college founded in 1873, underwent two periods of growth in the 1920s and 1930s, resulting in a collection of handsome, Georgian Revival-style buildings sited around a rectangular quadrangle with double rows of oak and magnolia trees lining its east and west sides. Funding helped the college to develop a preservation plan for its 25-acre historic core, designated a Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places, in order to identify an overall preservation strategy and serve as the basis for all future conservation work.

The institution used Getty Campus Preservation funding to conduct archival research to document its historic resources, examine overall building conditions, and develop treatment guidelines.
Abstract: Together with Morehouse and Spelman Colleges (both also awarded Campus Heritage grants), Clark Atlanta is part of the Atlanta University Center (AUC), the largest consortium of historically Black institutions in the US.

Despite the historic significance of the buildings on the campus, little was known about aspects of their original appearance or previous alterations. Clark Atlanta conducted archival research to document its historic resources, examine overall building conditions, and develop treatment guidelines.
