In the City of Atlanta, buildings may be listed on one or more of several historic registers. These include the National Register of Historic Places, the Georgia Register of Historic Places, and as either a landmark or historic building or district within the City of Atlanta. Several of the university’s buildings are listed and several are within the university’s physical sphere of influence.

Historic buildings and districts in the downtown area include:

  • • Haas-Howell: Landmark, building exterior and structure contributing to the Fairlie-Poplar National Register District (See Image 1.5)
  • • Ten Park Place: (The Thornton Building) Landmark, building exterior
  • • Dixie Coca-Cola Bottling Building (neighboring the campus)

Given the university’s mission and goals, this intimate interaction with the historic fabric of the city can be of significant benefit to both the university and the city. (See Figure 1.3)
