"Cobb Landmarks is a longtime supporter of preservation in Cobb County including both historic architectural and heritage preservation," said newly appointed CLHS Executive Director Nancy Gadberry.
Gadberry, who has almost completed her master's of Historic Preservation from Georgia State University, brings a business and financial background to CLHS as well as a love for preservation and history. Recently retired from AT&T as Executive Director, Gadberry also served as Chief Financial Officer of Zion Farms Equestrian Estate, an events facility.
Raised in Jefferson, Texas, Gadberry served as a junior docent at the Carnegie Library and at the Jay Gould Railroad Car. "Preservation is in my blood," said Gadberry.
"I am always for the underdog," stated the avid gardener whose first preservation love is historic gardens and landscapes. "Georgia's historic gardens so often get overlooked."
With many beautiful historic gardens and homes in Cobb County, CLHS's Spring celebration is the perfect time to support preservation efforts in the community.
"Community financial support of our events, including the Root House Plant Sale and the Spring Garden Party will enable CLHS to continue its programs," Gadberry said.
