About the VHPS Board

Our Purpose

The primary purpose of the Vinings Historic Preservation Society, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, is to maintain the three historic properties we own in the heart of Vinings:

  • The Pace House (c. 1865-1874, listed on the National Register of Historic Places)
  • The adjacent Old Pavilion (1874)
  • The Yarbrough House (1880)

These charming white clapboard buildings help to define Vinings as a very special place. They also help us to understand the past — the people and events that formed and shaped our village.

Preserving historic properties isn’t cheap. We have no endowments, but depend on money from memberships, fundraising events, venue rentals and donations.

We also rely on talented and hard-working volunteers, and the support of Vinings residents and businesses.

Our Board

VHPS's business affairs are overseen by a Board of Directors from the community. Directors serve on a voluntary, unpaid basis for three-year terms. They are expected to make significant contributions to the organization through work, wisdom and wealth (pick two!).

We are considered a working Board; VHPS has minimal support staff, so the Board does the work of the organization. Our Board members have both high-level expertise and a roll-up-your-sleeves attitude, enabling them to both create and implement major plans  and programs.
