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  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 entire designation document is available upon request from the Historic Preservation Commission.

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 by 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)
