Feb. 15, 2010 - PRLog -- Stonehurst Place, Atlanta’s first EarthCraft certified Bed and Breakfast Inn, joins the elite group of 45 preservation partners in celebrating the Atlanta Preservation Center’s Phoenix Flies: A Citywide Celebration of Living Landmarks. The seventh annual celebration of historic sites kicks off March 6 and runs through March 22, 2010.

“The renovation of Stonehurst, Atlanta’s historic Hinman house, was such an exciting project,” said owner Barb Shadomy.  “It’s a rare privilege to have an opportunity of this significant scale to combine the innovations of eco-friendly 21st century technology with the every-day life of a historic home.”

During the 17 days of Phoenix Flies, Atlantans and visitors alike will enjoy exploring some of the city’s most treasured historic sites, including homes like Stonehurst Place, churches, neighborhoods, cemeteries and schools. The public can enjoy more than 160 free events at various art centers, theaters, and Stonehurst Place owner Barb Shadomy’s alma mater Oglethorpe University. Scheduled events include tours of Stonehurst Place, bicycle and walking tours, lectures, exhibits, story telling, and more.

This year marks the 30th anniversary of The Atlanta Preservation Center and its efforts to preserve the city's architectural and landscape heritage.

Stonehurst Place joins the lineup of Atlanta sites including the Peters House, also known as Ivy Hall, which is now used as the Savannah College of Arts and Design (SCAD) Writing Center, which are open to the public during this year’s Phoenix Flies.

“We were so pleased to contribute to SCAD’s renovation of The Edward C. Peters House by donating some of our original interior wood flooring to their project, which was important because the Hinman and Peters homes were built within a few years of each other,” shared Shadomy.

Other properties on the list include:
- Atlanta History Center and Margaret Mitchell House
- Callanwolde Fine Arts Center
- The Herndon Home
- Historic Oakland Cemetery
- Oglethorpe University
- Piedmont Park Conservancy
- Rhodes Hall and the Georgia Trust

All of the Phoenix Flies events are free and open to the public. Additional information is available at  For information on the Atlanta Preservation Center and its 2010 guided walking tours, including Stonehurst Place on the Midtown Walking Tour, visit
