Member Spotlight

A Ramble weekend is typically eventful, often hectic, but always magical. As all of us on the Trust staff settle back at our desks in Rhodes Hall, we can reminisce on a very successful trip to Augusta, thanks in no small part to Erick Montgomery, Executive Director of Historic Augusta, Inc. This is his twentieth year of service to that organization, a great accomplishment and a great service to Georgia's history.

An Eagle Scout and a graduate of Middle Tennessee State University, Erick Montgomery is a diligent caretaker of Augusta's great wealth of historic places. He is also a published writer, having coauthored An Augusta Scrapbook: Twentieth Century Memories and published several articles in the New Georgia Encyclopedia. He has won multiple Preservation Awards from the Georgia Trust, and is also a Governor's Awards in the Humanities recipient. We all thank Erick, his family, and the staff of Historic Augusta for volunteering to help us make this a Ramble to remember. Eric's dedication and commitment to making the event a success are a testament to his passion for preservation.

If you couldn't make it to Augusta, we hope you will join us at Rhodes Hall tonight as our Preservation Month activities continue. Come hear Dr. Tracey Laird of Agnes Scott College speak on The Preservation of Cajun Music. The event is free and open to the public. Parking is available on Spring Street.
