Historic Macon Foundation

Historic Macon Foundation (HMF), non-profit organization, is one of the nationís largest, most productive and most innovative local historic preservation organizations with over 500 member households in Middle Georgia and over 6,000 listed historic buildings in our stewardship. Since our founding in 1964, HMF has served as the regional historical society and preservation organization of note. Our mission is to revitalize communities by preserving architecture and sharing history. Our vision is to be the premier preservation organization in the nation. HMF saves Maconís architectural treasures by purchasing, rehabilitating and selling structures listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In addition, HMF 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. The organization is staffed by nine full-time employees (including this position) and one part-time staff person, all of whom are entrepreneurial, vibrant, dedicated, fun and hardworking. The office atmosphere is fast-paced, multi-tasking, and highly collaborative. In August 2017, HMF relocated its offices to a newly rehabilitated commercial building in downtown. Employees are treated as professionals in their expertise; each staff person has the opportunity to lead and teach other team members and 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. All staff occasionally work nights and weekends for meetings and special events.
