Scott points to a blurb in the print version of the AJC, but not yet online.
Decatur is one of 10 Georgia cities receiving federal money for historic preservation projects.
The city will receive $10,000 from the Historic Preservation Fund to do a condition assessment report and preservation plan for the Beacon Hill complex.
The complex on West Trinity housed pre-integration elementary and high schools for the city’s African-American students. It has served as the city’s police department since the early 1980s.
The city has considered for years how to renovate the existing building for modern use, while retaining the historic character.
