ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Preservation Center is beginning its "Phoenix Files" celebration of area landmarks with the opening of a special photography project.

The center is planning a free kickoff celebration Friday at the 1854 Lemuel P. Grant Mansion on St. Paul Avenue in Atlanta.

The event includes the opening of a special photography exhibit at 5:30 p.m. Friday. The center commissioned eight Atlanta-area photographers to create images of sites it is working to preserve.

Granville Automatic, which sings about American Civil War battles and other events from history, will perform a free concert at 7 p.m. Friday at the mansion as part of the kickoff event.

The Atlanta Preservation Center works to promote preservation of Atlanta's architecturally, historically and culturally significant buildings, neighborhoods and landscapes.
