Historic Macon Foundation, Inc.

Historic Macon Foundation, a 501©3 non-profit organization, is one of the nationís largest, most productive and most innovative local historic preservation organizations with nearly 600 member households in Middle Georgia and 6,000 listed historic buildings in our stewardship. Since our founding in 1964, Historic Macon Foundation has served as the regional historical society of note. Our mission is to revitalize our community by preserving architecture and sharing history. Historic Macon saves Maconís architectural treasures by purchasing, rehabilitating and selling structures listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In addition, Historic Macon educates the public about the importance of Maconís history and architecture, runs events to help celebrate Maconís unique assets and operates the Sidney Lanier Cottage house museum. Our programs in economic development and neighborhood revitalization are award winners on a national scale and serve as a model for other preservation and revitalization organizations. This is a new position that will inherit responsibilities from existing staff people and expand the capacity of the organization to accomplish its mission. The Preservation & Education Coordinator will join four other full-time employees and one part-time staff person, all of whom are vibrant, dedicated, fun and hard working. The office atmosphere is fast-paced, multi-tasking, technology-oriented and highly collaborative. Employees are treated as professionals in their expertise; each staff person has the opportunity to lead and teach other team members and literally hundreds of volunteers who are interested in our mission. Staff members manage their own time and tasks, and a flexible work schedule is a benefit. Although an obligation to some night and weekend work is expected, office hours are served less rigorously.
