National Register

A large area of Eatonton was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in June 1975. See summary page for Putnam County: Putnam County National Register entries.

The actual maps produced in 1975 are included here as two pages.

A  rough drawing of the boundary of the Eatonton National Register District is included here for reference:

National Register boundary.

It should be noted that when the original map was drawn, it did not pay heed to lot boundaries, but rather focused on the buildings.

The  designation document is available here.

Period of Significance.

This email from the Georgia Historic Preservation Division clarifies that both they and the National Park Service will consider our Period of Significance to be 1809-1925.  HPD Email 10_25_2017

The email references an approved tax credit project at 203 N Washington Ave.203 N Washington Tax Credit Approval

IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT IF A PROPERTY IS INCLUDED IN THE NATIONAL REGISTER ( individually or by being part of a district) IT DOES NOT AFFORD ANY PROTECTION IN TERMS OF DEMOLITION, RELOCATION OR CHANGES TO THE BUILDING ( except for Section 106 projects).

THE NATIONAL REGISTER DESIGNATION DOES ALLOW A BUILDING OWNER TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF CERTAIN STATE & FEDERAL TAX CREDITS. IN ADDITION, THE PROPERTIES ARE PROTECTED FROM REMOVAL OR DEMOLITION FROM A FEDERALLY FUNDED PROJECT, WHICH INCLUDES ALL GDOT PROJECTS ( known as Section 106 protection)
