MGA Students' Research May Help Payne City Land on National Register of Historic Places

Dr. Susan Asbury's historic preservation class presented their research on Payne City, a former mill village off Vineville Avenue that dates to the late 19th century, to Historic Macon, who will use the class’s research to help decide whether to launch a long-term effort to get Payne City listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The historic preservation class is an advanced-level course within the public history concentration of MGA’s Bachelor of Arts in History Research projects the class takes on help students with a passion for history consider various career options within their discipline, including preservation and archival work.
