The Vinings Historic Preservation Society (VHPS) was established by a great-great-granddaughter of early Vinings settler Hardy Pace. After her death in 1992, Ruth Carter Vanneman's will created the charitable organization to preserve historic Vinings properties. She also bequeathed the not-for-profit the beloved Pace House (c. 1865-1874).
We are passionate about these three properties entrusted to our care. We believe they represent the heart of Vinings and help to define our village as a very special place.
We also rely on talented and hard-working volunteers, and the support of Vinings residents and businesses.
If you shudder at the thought of a gas station or office building at the intersection of Paces Ferry and Paces Mill – instead of the white-picket-fenced historic Yarbrough House – join us! There are many ways that you can contribute.
